This usually happens when OpenSSH is built on a host that has a
self-seeded PRNG (ie a working /dev/{u,}random or prngd) but is run on a
host that doesn't.

You can tell OpenSSH to fall back to external entropy collection in that
case by building with "./configure --with-rand-helper". The real
solution is to fix your PRNG.

Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
