Shell script error

Hello, it's me again. This time I'm trying to do some shell scripting
but I'm running into a problem with a randomization script that I found
on the web. The script I'm trying to run can be found at:
Everything runs fine on different Linux systems that I've used (Red Hat
Knoppix-STD, PHLAK) but when I run the script on FreeBSD or OpenBSD I
errors. I'm mainly running FreeBSD 5.3-BETA right now with
installed so that's where I'd really like to get it running.
I did change the first line to point to /usr/local/bin/bash but that
didn't make any difference.
If anyone knows why this won't run, or if anyone has another example of
getting a random character (I'd eventually like to generate a random
hexadecimal character) I'd love to hear from you.
