You need to ask the vendor ;-)

I don't know how thisn version has been configured, but given that it
is free software you have all sources and required tools to build it.
So you can check.

The random-seed is not required but a cache gpg creates if possible.
You might want to fire up truss to see what files gpg opens.  My guess
is that it has been configured for use with EGD and you have not
installed it or the socket has the wrong permissions.

If it is not a workstation you should generate some disk activity
(e.g. running: fdisk /usr -print) to hel the entropy gatherer.
