libgcrypt11 is not happy: it always fails with
Fatal: no entropy gathering module detected

That's because in configure.ac, if either /dev/random or /dev/urandom
doesn't exist, neither is considered fine.  In the solaris, irix, osf
and netbsd cases however, /dev/random is sufficient.

So my question is: will we provide a /dev/urandom? (pseudo-random
generator)  In the meanwhile, maybe we can patch libgcrypt11 for just be
happy with /dev/random?
