Hola Mondo!

The New /dev/random device is in but there are come caveats.

1) It is not yet cryptographically secure, so those of you using
   CURRENT for "live" projects, please be careful!

2) If you do not have the randomdev module loaded, ssh will
   fail in strange and creative ways (like RSA or DH not working
   for strange reasons).

3) It is not built by default (except as a kernel module), so you
   either need to add the "options RANDOMDEV" like to your kernel
   config, or load it at boot time in /dev/loader.conf

4) Make sure that you update your /etc area (mergemaster is your
   friend). The rndcontrol(8) utility is now OBE, and no longer of

You have been warned!
