Yes I get this under Solaris 8. However, I've only just started with openssh,
so checking the FAQ (where the problem is listed) I simply ran configure with

It runs fine then. For configure I use:

./configure --with-tcp-wrappers --with-catman=man

TCP wrappers because I have it; catman because the man pages come out
'weird' without it; default path because of the scp problem you mention.

Otherwise 2.1.0p2 seems to work fine - sshd stays running; no utmp problem;
no bad file number messages; no fixprogs problem.
