When you install gunpg adn try to create for the first time a keypar
you will get an error random_seed not found.
that's becouse there is not a directory called .gnupg in you home dir
you can change that dir later with gpg --homedir if you wan yo

Install gnupg from ports
then try to create a keypar gpg --gen-key
and you will get an error.
