Does not generate random passwords
Binary package hint: makepasswd
makepasswd doesn't use /dev/random to generate the password as the description claims, but only uses /dev/random to generate a 32bit seed for the insecure srand/rand functions. This limits it to a pool of just 2**32 possible passwords which is much less the it should be able to produce given the default length of 6-8 characters (which also sounds rather short) out of a collection of 58.
