Yes and no. That daemon is a 'hack' for systems that lack
a randomness device. You don't want to use it when you do
have a good /dev/random.
FreeBSD has a /dev/random except that it has been broken
for a while whilst MarkM brought it up to snuff. The mailing
list archives ought to contain all of the details one needs
to fix this temporary problem. No need to resort to EGD, just
tweak some config.
