You can use prngd to provide a random pool and then compile openssh with
something like --with-egd-pool=/where/you/find/the/thing as an argument
to configure.

Note that sshd will more probably crash pfinet rather than actually
work, though.  The ssh _client_ should be fine.

If you are able to debug this further, that would be great.
