gnupg and egd

I am trying to compile gnupg so that it only uses the Entropy Gathering

Here are the flags I send to configure:
	./configure --disable-dev-random --enable-static-rnd=egd

After it is built I try to encrypt a file even though I do not have my egd

I expected to get an error message saying that it can not get random data,
instead it looks like it encrypted the message.

Is there a different set of arguments I should be using to configure ?
