I'll have to look at it when I get home tonight.. but it does not work
as claimed under Linux.  So I doubt it will work under NeXT.

[mouring at etoh ossh]$ make                                                       
gcc -g -O2 -Wall -I. -I. -I/opt/openssl/include
-DETCDIR=\"/opt/openssh/etc\" -D
c/ssh-askpass\" -DHAVE_CONFIG_H   -c -o ssh.o ssh.c                             
ssh.c: In function `main':                                                      
ssh.c:568: `__progname' undeclared (first use in this function)                 
ssh.c:568: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once                    
ssh.c:568: for each function it appears in.)                                    
[mouring at etoh ossh]$ grep HAVE___PROG *.h  
acconfig.h:#undef HAVE___PROGNAME          
config.h:#define HAVE___PROGNAME 1         

SSHing home is a bear for some odd reason lately. <sigh>
