Blarg, this should have gone to the list, not to Markus direct.

Quoting Markus Friedl (markus.friedl at informatik.uni-erlangen.de) from  3 June 2001:

Sorry, it seemed a little nebulous of a response. You did reply though and I'll
apologize for saying that no one had replied. I've personally been unable to 
find more information on BSD_AUTH so I can't say I'm well educated on how it
works. I'm very glad that it closes this door on OpenBSD.

While this no longer applies to OpenBSD now that we have moved to BSD_AUTH I
believe this is still an issue with OpenSSH in the portable release, correct?
We can't expect {Linux,Solaris,<foobar-os>} to have BSD_AUTH can we?

Your response is appreciated,
