Yes, and the startup uses it explicitly anyway:

tsunami:/[442]# more /etc/init.d/sshd

case "$1" in
        if [ -f /var/ssh/sshd_config -a -f /opt/openssh/sbin/sshd ] ; then
                /opt/openssh/sbin/sshd -b 640 -f /var/ssh/sshd_config \
                                            -h /var/ssh/ssh_host_key 1>

Here is my configure script that I used for 2.3 through 2.5p2:

riptide:/usr/src/local/openssh-2.5.1p2[14] more ecn
rm config.cache
CC="cc -xO4 -xarch=v9" ./configure \
        --prefix=/opt/openssh \
        --sysconfdir=/var/ssh \
        --with-rsh=/usr/local/etc/rsh \
        --with-ipv4-default \
        --with-ssl-dir=/usr/local/ssl \
in:/opt/openssh/bin \
