+This is a Linux port of OpenBSD's excellent OpenSSH.
OpenSSH is based on the last free version of Tatu Ylonen's SSH with
all patent-encumbered algorithms removed, all known security bugs
fixed, new features reintroduced and many other clean-ups.
-This Linux port basically consists of a few fixes to deal with the way
-that OpenSSL is usually installed on Linux systems, a few replacements
-for OpenBSD library functions and the introduction of PAM support. This
-version tracks changes made to the OpenBSD CVS version.

The PAM support is now more functional than the popular packages of
commercial ssh-1.2.x. It checks "account" and "session" modules for
all logins, not just when using password authentication. This code is
