lsh can create a random seed with some entropy from other sources,
like various system state or even the traditional random typing thing.
So even if real /dev/random is strongly recommended, it is not
absolutely necessary.

It would be really nice to have a xenofarm client running on a Hurd
machine. That's the easiest way to see if it works on the hurd, as
well as getting details on compilation problems etc. See
http://www.lysator.liu.se/xenofarm/ and http://www.lysator.liu.se/ for
details. Mail me if you need any help setting it up.
