Thanks for your advice.  I checked config.log and by searching
"random" I found the followings.

configure:25022: checking for random-integer functions
configure:25061: gcc -o conftest -O2  -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64  -D_GNU_SOURCE  
-DLINUX -I/usr/include/ncursesw  conftest.c -L/usr/lib -lncursesw -lgnutls 
-lcrypt -lbsd  >&5
/tmp/ccy2f6ti.o: In function `main':
conftest.c:(.text+0x19): undefined reference to `arc4random_push'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
configure:25064: $? = 1

configure:25082: result: arc4random_stir/arc4random
configure:25085: checking for range of random-integers
configure:25125: gcc -c -O2  -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64  -D_GNU_SOURCE  -DLINUX 
-I/usr/include/ncursesw conftest.c >&5
configure:25128: $? = 0
configure:25131: test -s conftest.o
configure:25134: $? = 0
configure:25145: result: 0xFFFFFFFFUL

I'm afraid the first block looked bad but not sure.
Is there any other information necessary?
