This laptop doesn't boot without acpi enabled. Hangs after:
ppc0: parallel port not found.
That's just after printing
kern.seedenable: 0 -> 1
load: 0.27 cmd: sysctl 23 [acsem] 0.00u 0.01s 0% 276k
load: 0.08 cmd: dd 20 [piperd] 0.00u 0.05s 0% 164k
That's either in /etc/rc.d/random or /etc/rc.d/initrandom.
Tried booting not using them and so far doesn't hang.
Might be that it can't gather enough entropy; where does it gather 
entropy from? Perhaps from static on the (in your case nonexisting) 
parallel port?
