[Mono-devel-list] Patch for using egd/prngd for random numbers

I've been meaning to send this round for a bit. Here is a patch
to enable use of egd or prngd for random numbers for machines
without /dev/random. 

It adds an option to configure --with-egd which can be
"yes" meaning use the env var MONO_EGD_SOCKET for
getting the socket to talk to the daemon, or can be the
name of the path to the socket if you want to compile this
in as an absolute reference.

Any issues?
