heck, I don't know :)  I found a place earlier today...  From google
just now I can see that various packages redistribute it with private
patches to solve one portability problem or another.  Somebody claims
to have solved problems it had with glibc.  mod_ssl ships it...

Does anybody know where the "best" version is, if there is such a
thing?

I think we should provide it as a backup random generator for APR on
Unix (to use when there is no kernel device like /dev/random),
assuming the license is not a problem.  (I doubt that it is.)
