I am testing against RH7.2beta, including support for KRB4 (kth-1.0.7)
and AFS. Openssh CVS snapshot as of Oct 12 11:52 CEST.

Current problems:

- mkstemp on RH7.2 is detected (so the bsd-mkstemp.o will be empty),
but this version needs "XXXXXX" in the file name template, otherwise
it will return an error (EINVAL). In auth-krb4.c, the current template
includes just pid and uid, no "X"s. Due to the logic in auth-krb4.c
this error is misinterpreted as "file already present", with a
subsequent check on ownership failing. Please not that the bsd-mkstemp()
handles the situation just fine.

- a rather recent autoconf appears to be needed for AC_SYS_LARGEFILE,
RH7.2beta ships with  2.13 (too old).

- compiling openbsd-compat/ shows lots of errors, I haven't sorted
these out yet (and they could be my fault):
