It's not present on 5.4-Stable, so I have patched it.
In /etc/rc.d/sshd I also have this:
  # REQUIRE: LOGIN random

However, it still does not work.
This is what I observe:

1. If random is not started, it will load the random
   module, if needed.
   So this part seems to work OK now.

2. If random module is not loaded and random has not
   yet started, then I get this:

        # /etc/rc.d/sshd start
        Starting sshd.
        PRNG is not seeded

My conclusion is:
sshd does simply not call random at all, although I
have added it in the "# REQUIRE:" line.

Is this a general bug in 5-Stable?
Or am I testing this in the wrong way?
