Is it possible that this option is not currently honored by the
configure script? It shows up in the help, is accepted by configure 
|./configure --with-default-path="/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/sbin/:/usr/sbin:/sbin",
but the stdpath set in config.h still shows the normal path without
/local and grepping for "/local" over the sources doesn't give hits -
and the compiled sshd still sets the path to what is default.

I feel rather stupid here.
