Remove EGD support or make EGD support configurable #296
The next release of OpenSSL 1.0.2 still seems to contain code supporting the Perl Entropy Gathering Daemon. No current platform requires EGD, all platforms have a far superior and more secure source of entropy.
"Legacy platforms that are unlikely to have wide deployment will be removed from the code." suggests that you no longer need to support systems requiring Perl EGD as source of randomness and I believe this should be removed.
