[patch] SSL random number seeding errors on startup





------- Additional Comments From mads@apache.org  2004-01-03 11:02 -------
There is already some mention of this in the FAQ:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/ssl/ssl_faq.html#entropy

Maybe it is too early for me to read patches, but your patch
appears to move the SSLRandomSeed outside <IfDefine SSL> which
would generally be a bad thing since the loading of mod_ssl in
a dso default config has:
<IfDefine SSL>
LoadModule ssl_module modules/mod_ssl.so
</IfDefine>
So you'd run into startup errors whenever starting without -DSSL
