There you go.  "configure --with-randomdev=/dev/random"

If you don't specify a random device when you run configure, it will try to
find one for you.  But it knows you're not building BIND on the system
where you'll be running it, so it would be useless to search the current
system for a random device, so it stops the build.  But if you tell it what
device to use, it won't need to search for one.
