Your system lacks the /dev/zero device which is standard on
any POSIX compatible system. I assume you are running the
POSIX subsystem of MVS: Even if it seems towork, it is
questionalbe whether the random generator will be good
enough. better install GNU/Linux on one partition. BTW,
the current version is 1.2.7
