These look very interesting!
I found that when compiling with Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition the 
functions srand48, drand48 and isnan are not available. Maybe they exist 
for a mingw build.
I got them to compile by making my own wrapper functions that call 
random instead, and replacing isnan by _isnan from float.h.
I wonder if there could be a way to use a particular random source: 
given that all the pseudorandom generators are compromised from the 
start, could a random source be specified as a user-defined function 
That way the user could substitute a hardware generator or a file for 
the random source.
Of course this applies to all the pd externals and builtins that use 
random, not only kaos.
