Ah, yes. For some reason that seems to have come up a lot in the last
few days -- maybe the solar system is running out of entropy or
something.

Thorsten Schmitt-Rink, can you rebuild APR to use /dev/urandom instead
of /dev/random, and then rebuild Subversion against the new APR? Uh,
I'm not sure whether both client and server need this done (and in fact,
the answer may be different for http:// vs svn://), so do both to be
safe. I just can't remember all the circumstances in which we need
random numbers.
