Thanks.
However, I am confused now.

The error I got yesterday was the 'lack of entropy' one, but today 'version
mismatch', which made me run ldd on my svn binary, and notice that I had messed
up something myself: the libraries referenced for ssl and crypto were indeed old
ones by names with a '.1' extension, through the '.sl' softlinks.

Cheating by replacing those with soft links to the '.0.9.8' ones, and restarting
with egd daemon, resulted in a successful run of my test.

So in fact it seems that I can now report a successful build of neon without
explicit mention of egd, but that even on HP-UX 11.00, openssl 0.9.8c (and
probably earlier versions as advertised) can get entropy from some of the
expected sources (in my case: /var/run/egd-pool).
