Thanks for all replies,
my system is standard linux distribution(gentoo).
There's not a rndcontrol command on my linux box but the directory
random, on /proc/sys/kernel, contains various parameters controlling
the operation of the file /dev/random,
i'll try to work with this to increase /dev/random.
Modify the code is not a solution for me, the key generation
script have to run on any linux box without patch.
