Because of the behaviour of certain of their developers, I wouldn't
use OpenSSH if you paid me.

1. OpenSSH 2.1 on OpenBSD 2.6 problems

Followed the instructions for installing OpenSSH 2.1 on OpenBSD 2.6

Had to manually type in some files to patch, and manually add the
kame.h file.  Also had to pkg_add an SSL for OpenBSD 2.7 package.

The resulting ssh and sshd would not resolve host names or IP addresses.
Errors like:

fatal: bad addr or host: (name or service is not known)
fatal: Cannot bind any address.

get syslogged when trying to start sshd.

What else needs to be done?
