What still doesn't have /dev/random, and what does software do to compensate?
I'm only mentioning this because we got recent bug reports about
things not working right because of a buggy snprintf() on an ancient
HPUX box. Does the ancient HPUX box in question have /dev/random? Good
That was mine, and no it doesn't have /dev/random. But, as I said
earlier, I'd prefer to opt-out of this whole cryptographic host part
concept anyway. I think as long as you provide an option to still use
the regular host name for message IDs, people who don't have /dev/random
have an escape.
