The question about -rand option is valid, but Viktor’s post is right and the rest of my post is wrong :(

  *   openssl dsaparam 128 -rand file

Why are you using the -rand option?  Unless this is a special platform, don’t do that.

  *   is taking long time processing the command and not producing any output.

What is your hardware and software?

Can you run it under a debugger, and interrupt it sometimes to see where it is?
