Your installation is _severly_ broken. The /dev/random special device file
is included with the package "devs". Try to reinstall it, but I fear that
there may be other problems as well with your machine.
Another thing _may_ be, that qmail is running in a chroot and you didn't
copy the /dev/random to /dir/of/qmail/chroot/dev (use cp -a for this).
But I don't know if qmail supports/uses chroot ...
