Failed password

If there is a place to post this, please advise, but I am stuck. I have
recently installed openssh-1.2.3
on a Red Hat 6.1 installation. Everything compile ok but I don't get no
password auththenticcation.
So I recompiled openssh-1.2.3 without PAM support and it still  does not
work. I can log into
the system otherwise (shadow password is enabled).

Here is what I have in my /var/log/messages:

Mar 27 19:13:11 localhost sshd[23711]: Failed password for itchy from port 1022
Mar 27 19:13:11 localhost sshd[23711]: Connection closed by

Any suggestions how I might enable a more verbose error log or get some
idea of what is
