prng not seeded

On Solaris 8, you have 3 choices
1) run prngd
2) run egd
3) use the builtin function with openssh and openssl < --- need to find out about this -- it has to do with /usr/local/etc/ssh_prng_cmds, but how to configure -- i think i need to compile rather than snarfing from sunfreeware.com.

Ok -- the deal is that if /dev/random doesn't exist, the configure script on openssh will detect this.

So -- if you're running Solaris 8, and you don't want to load prngd or egd, you can't use the openssh package. So, you install openssl via pkg if you want, and then compile openssh.
