While the last message to appear is "Entropy harvesting:", that may or
may not be the cause of the hang. It really should continue after a ^C
if that was the issue.
Can you try a ^T to see what is really running? Or, if that does not
tell you, try adding rc_debug="YES" to rc.conf. This will produce a LOT
of output, but you probably are only interested in the end of it.
Doug is WAY better at the rc issues than I am, but at least this should
provide a bit more information.
