Now *that* sound interesting:
How do I configure Tomcat to generate entropy by listening to cosmic
radiation? Couldn't find anything about this in the docs... ;)

Nope, we're just using plain OpenSSL here.

I was just a bit afraid that the netropy generated by /dev/urandom
might be a bit weak.

JFC also told me that builtin == OpenSSL when the APR is linked against OpenSSL.

So all my questions have been answered, my installation is working,
and I have to give some big KUDOES to everybody involved here - thank
you, guys!

just because you're paranoid, don't mean they're not after you...
