    you have a few choices...

    1. upgrade to HPUX11i(11.11) and install the Kernal module for /dev/random
    2. compile with --with-prngd-socket=/path/to/egd-pool
    3. use a third party /dev/random for HPUX11
    4. ignore the error and continue to use the subprocess random helper built in OpenSSH

    These are order in best to worse choice.

    WARNING: you are using the builtin random number collection

    I am able to do a make and it goes through without any errors.But I
    just wanted to know if there was any solution to the above warning
    message ( Is there any software/patch that I can install to get rid of
    this problem)

    Thanks in advance
