Source: pound
Version: 2.6-6.1
Severity: wishlist
Usertags: randomness


While working on the "reproducible builds" effort [1], we have noticed
that pound could not be built reproducibly.

During build "openssl dhparam" is used to generate C header files containing
DH parameters, which are not reproducible.
Those are always randomly generated. Even when seeded with "-rand /filename",
openssl reads from /dev/urandom to generate them.

I'm not sure what the best solution would be to make it reproducible.
Perhaps the header files can be pre-generated and included in the source
