random, srandom, and initstate

I have been looking around for an implementation
to port to newlib.  This is a link to the
FreeBSD version.


It is OK license-wise.  But I was curious if

(1) It's use of /dev/random and gettimeofday
     as possible seed sources can be accomodated
     in newlib.  Probably need to be disabled
     via some conditional compilation.

(2) Should I go ahead and modify them to be
     the _r versions and have the non-_r version
     call those with static variables?
