if you are on netbsd-current (and in the near future on 1.5),
rnd(4) device is now mandatory to use in-tree ssh/sshd. there has been
a fallback case implemented in the code, however, the quality of random
number may have not been too good.
if you wish to run ssh/sshd, enable rnd(4) device in your kernel
configuration file. in summary, do the following steps if you don't
have it yet:
- add the following line into your kernel configuration file
- rebuild the kernel
- reboot with the new kernel.
for 1.5 GENERIC kernel for most of the ports, it is already there,
so there's high probability you have it already.
(for luna68k we cannot do this right now - i'm contacting the port
