Prior to 5.8p2 *and* not Linux:

2. Affected configurations

        Portable OpenSSH prior to version 5.8p2 only on platforms
        that are configured to use ssh-rand-helper for entropy

        ssh-rand-helper is enabled at configure time when it is
        detected that OpenSSL does not have a built-in source of
        randomness, and only used at runtime if this condition
        remains. Platforms that support /dev/random or otherwise
        configure OpenSSL with a random number provider are not

        In particular, *BSD, OS X, Cygwin and Linux are not
