Setting up random-egd the postinst script fails, see below: 
showtrans /dev/random > /dev/null || settrans
-cp /dev/random /hurd/random /tmp/entropy.sock
showtrans /dev/urandom > /dev/null || settrans
-cp /dev/urandom /hurd/random -u /tmp/entropy.sock

seems to work, but trying to ls /dev/random gives the error translator
Doing an ls -l of /dev/ shows something like for random:
????-???-??? ? ?? ?? ?, ???? /dev/random

Trying to ls or chmod /dev/random gives the translator died message.

Installing the random file from the random-64 package copied
to /hurd/random with similar commands also fails, the created file is
not a character file, as above.
