Before the weekend I did a build of gnupg off the master
branches on an Intel MacBook running Big Sur with Xcode 13.2.1 using the
MacOS SDK 12.1.

libgcrypt fails in rndgetentropy.c because the prototype for getentropy()
is missing.  The prototype is provided by sys/random.h per the man pages.

The following patch fixes this for me.
