I've taken a look at this, and it's much better than my
implementation.  If NetBSD were to ship an nc in base, it should
be OpenBSD's.  They put it in /usr/bin, which is better than
nothing, though i'd still rather have it in /bin.

The only change necessary to make it work on NetBSD was changing
it to use random(3) instead of arc4random(3).
