Hi,

Yes I got in the same trouble some days ago.
The --with-egd and --enable-egd does not seem to work at least on HP-UX (or may be as you said it considers that it's not necessary because of the openssl version... but it should not with this old OS !)

I've finally solved it like that:
After doing the .configure (with all options) I've manually modified the config.h file before doing the compilation.
Replacing:
/* Define to specific EGD socket path */
/* #undef EGD_PATH */

/* Define if EGD should be supported */
/* #undef ENABLE_EGD */
By:
/* Define to specific EGD socket path */
#define EGD_PATH "/your/path/to/prngd-pool"

/* Define if EGD should be supported */
#define ENABLE_EGD 1

Note that you have to install prngd or egd on HP-UX as there is no /dev/random or /dev/urandom

Christophe Méresse
