To figure out what the random helper program is doing (or not doing, as the case
may be) try running "ssh-random-helper -vvv" multiple times, checking if it
fails sometimes and comparing the output between runs.

You'll probably get better results if you install prgnd:

If your OpenSSL is relatively modern, it will search the default places for the
prngd socket so you won't need to recompile OpenSSH after installing prngd, it
will be used automatically.

BTW, what version of SunOS are you running?
