It's in /usr/games/random of FreeBSD 4.8.

No. In 'man 6 random', it says:

     random [-er] [-f filename] [denominator]

     -e      If the -e option is specified, random does not read or write any-
             thing, and simply exits with a random exit value of 0 to
             denominator - 1, inclusive.

So you must capture its exit value for the random number :).
