Hmmm...  There are both international and domestic versions of the
Sun Web Server patch that contains SUNWski.  One can only download
the international version with no crypto.  Will the international
version have a functioning /dev/random, or will I have to get the
folks at 1-800-USA4SUN to send me a tape?

Also, the above patches are from 1998.  I need this to work on
Solaris 8.  Has anybody tried this?  Or am I back to 1-800-USA4SUN?
