I'm skeptical as APR has never automatically preferred /dev/urandom by
default if /dev/random exists. =) In fact, AFAICT, the last change
to that area of configure code was in 2002 by Joe Orton to prefer
arandom over random on OpenBSD.

The apr_generate_random_bytes() is the only APR function that uses the
output of --with-devrandom's argument. So, if this trick Karl
mentioned is of any help at all, that function has to be the culprit.
