I thought about that and took the lazy approach: the option is still
available even if gnutls is used, even though it's a nop.  Why then
change the interface if libressl is used instead of openssl/gnutls?

Or maybe this was merely overlooked and openssl should really be
a special case here, dunno.

Or... another alternative would be to get rid of RAND_egd altogether,
with --egd-file staying for compat for a few releases. :)
