Check your HP-UX for /dev/random and /dev/urandom as this has been
patched into most of the recent versions. I just checked an 11.11
machine and it had it available now. I don't recall when this feature
became available there but it is quite possible that you won't need
egd or prngd anymore.

Of course. As in I would agree with your statement too. But of
course /someone/ must be able to compile it. :-)
