Unhappy need help automating ssh-keygen

I'm writing a script that will run ssh-keygen and I'd like to use expect to automate this part of the script. But whenever I spawn ssh-keygen I get a "command not found" error. If I don't use the spawn command to run ssh-keygen then it works fine but I can't figure out how to send a carriage return to ssh-keygen (since I'm accepting all defaults for ssh-keygen).
Any ideas, tips, hints or tricks would be greatly appreciated.

your $PATH is probably wrong. either set it early in the script, or use the full path to ssh-keygen.
