I think your OpenSSL has found the prngd socket and considers itself to be
"self-seeded".  This would cause OpenSSH's random helper (which is what uses the
prngd socket) to not be built at all.

When you configure OpenSSH, what do the "Random number source:" and
"ssh-rand-helper collects from" lines on the summary display say?

I suspect you just need to add "--with-rand-helper" to your configure command to
build the random helper despite what OpenSSL claims.
