When you create a custom setup like that, you will have to replace
etc/rc.d/entropy with a custom solution (e.g. mounting some flash storage).

Or you ignore the issue and do the dd at each boot - hopefully not generating
any strong keys on that machine then (but you would have no good storage
for those anyway).
