I am aware of your original post; it is

and I cannot find the line where you told us how you ran
configure/make of openssh, and config/make for openssl.

Saying RH 6.1 is not enough obviously, since many of us run openssh on
RH 6.1 without a glitch.  So there must be something about your setup
that is special---or the way you compiled openss{h,l}.

I have never referred you to RH.  I told you to look at the openssh
and openssl rpm packages *made by openssh's maintainer*.  In
particular, to look at the spec file, which would tell you how openssh
can be compiled to make it work for sure on RH systems.

You decided not to use the rpms, and compile the progs yourself, but I
thought it is important info to those on the list who are trying to
help you to see that you are not using the "standard" rpm installation
on your RH system.  Hence I forwarded part of our conversation to the
openssh list.

I think in this case, you got upset, because you wanted to figure out
what is wrong with your ssh setup   by reading logs and running ssh in
debug mode, while I suggested to go back one step, and see how you
compiled ssh in the first place.
