        conf/std has the following comment, which seems outdated.

        # Kernel entropy pool and random-number generator pseudodevice.
        # The pseudodevice might stop being "std" when the two are torn
        # apart some day but the entropy pool itself never will (they are
        # presently implemented in the same source file)
        pseudo-device   rnd

        a. make rnd optional again (ie. revert the band-aid fix)


        b. fix the comment

        i prefer a. because it restores a kernel config incompatibility from
        the previous release.
