apr/configure --with-devrandom=/dev/urandom or

There is is also hw_random device driver for some mb in Linux kernel (and
probably in *BSD).

 CONFIG_HW_RANDOM:
    This driver provides kernel-side support for the Random
    Number Generator hardware found on Intel i8xx-based
    motherboards, AMD 76x-based motherboards, and Via Nehemiah CPUs.

I just hit in that by myself.
