very crude....but

function rand
{
TMPFILE=/tmp/BASHRANDOMTMPFILE.
/usr/bin/vmstat > $TMPFILE /usr/bin/uptime >>$TMPFILE
/usr/bin/free   >> $TMPFILE /sbin/ifconfig >>$TMPFILE
/bin/date   >> $TMPFILE cksum$TMPFILE | awk '{print $1}' \rm$TMPFILE
}

should do all you want.  apart from that write a 10 line c program, it would take about 10 lines i am guessing.
