I've been reading the docs for BIND 9.1.0, and it says the following
On FreeBSD systems, the server logs error messages like "fcntl(8, F_SETFL, 4):
Inappropriate ioctl for device". This is due to a bug in the FreeBSD /dev/random
device. The bug has been reported to the FreeBSD maintainers. Versions of
OpenBSD prior to 2.8 have a similar problem.
I am still running 2.6 on some systems. What breaks with this "bug"? Can I fix
/dev/random without upgrading to 2.8?
