what is the setting of APR_HAS_RANDOM in whichever apr.h the Apache 
build is using?

what is put in config.log related to the mod_auth_digest checking right 
before the failure?

Note that this code was changed to use an APR macro to check for 
APR_HAS_RANDOM recently (2 weeks ago), and the APR macro itself was 
changed in the same timeframe, so updating httpd-2.0 without updating 
apr wouldn't be too cool.  Hopefully the info asked for above will yield 
some clues.
