This patch provides a quick hack for using /dev/random
for random challenge generation instead of the weak and
predictable built-in rand().

    I'd like to consider this for 2.7 ; I hope it's okay.

    VTun 2.9.90+ uses OpenSSL's RAND_bytes() which is
    automatically seeded with /dev/urandom or /dev/random.

    http://www.openssl.org/support/faq.cgi#USER1
    "All OpenSSL versions try to use /dev/urandom by default;
    starting with version 0.9.7, OpenSSL also tries /dev/random
    if /dev/urandom is not available."
