	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.
