In Solaris 8, see patch#111659 for a kernel /dev/random and /dev/urandom

For Solaris 9, I believe it was preinstalled, my Solaris 9 box has it
installed, so I know it is around.

Older versions of Solaris can look at ANDIrand, a similar package.

unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American
