The old code in libdes uses diffrences in timing rom realtime clock  
as random source.

If you think you have good random, please call RAND_add() with at  
least 128 bytes as input. The the internal random generator will be  
happy if we are forced to use it.

I'll re-add the old stuff and check the results from it.
