Re: portable use of 'dd'

    This particular case is only weak evidence that 'dd' needs to be in
    the list, since the code uses 'dd' only when /dev/urandom is readable,
    and I expect that 'dd' is supported everywhere /dev/urandom is.

So, I'm inclined to do nothing.  /dev/urandom is surely less portable
than dd, so there seems to be no point.
