There is none of either on my box.
I know there is a depot available from HP to provide /dev/random on 11.11,
but not on 11.00.

I installed egd already earlier, but starting it doesn't seem very convincing:

# fuser -f /var/run/egd-pool
/var/run/egd-pool:

# /vob/tools_HP-UX/perl/perl-5.8.7/bin/egd.pl /var/run/egd-pool
22 sources found
forking into background...
server starting
# sh: 1723 Memory fault(coredump)

# jobs
# fuser -f /var/run/egd-pool
/var/run/egd-pool:

# ps -ef | grep -v grep | egrep '^ *root .*perl'
    root 1687 1 0 09:05:12 pts/td 0:02
/vob/tools_HP-UX/perl/perl-5.8.7/bin/perl -w /vob/tools_HP-U
    root 24374 1 0 Oct 13 ? 5:26
/vob/tools_HP-UX/perl/perl-5.8.7/bin/perl -w /vob/tools_HP-U
#

Looks like there was a previous instance running...
Maybe.

Anyway. I didn't tell openssl, neon or subversion to use /var/run/egd-pool
and I guess they'd have skipped this anyway because of the openssl version.
