Can anyone advise a way of using ProxyCommand for socks v4/v5 under AIX
4.3.x?  I use runsocks under Solaris and Linux, but this is not available
for AIX.  I have been using the NEC socks library to socksify OpenSSH at
compile time, but if there is a better way...

BTW, AIX 4.3.2 and above can dynamically socksify connects, but only to
socks v5 servers.

Many thanks,
