No, nothing obvious.

One possibility: if you're using OpenSSL <= 0.9.7e compiled on Solaris 10, 
it won't use the /dev/*random devices.  This means that the 
ssh-rand-helper needs to exist in its final location (/usr/local/libexec 
by default) in order for the tests to run (so if it started working after 
a "make install" then that's probably the reason).

     Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
