I don't think that manual page was very enlightening, but this
discussion sheds more light on urandom's behaviour:


    /dev/(u)random on BSD actually blocks until it has collected
    enough entropy to get going, and doesn't block thereafter.

in other words, for pass(1) usage, /dev/urandom works just fine on OpenBSD.
