This sounds very much like you compiled OpenSSL as shared library (which
is not recommended) or there was already a shlib-OpenSSL on your system,
which is now lacking on the target system.

I have no problems copying ssh/sshd binaries between AIX 4.2 and 4.3
machines (not using bff, but customer-customized tar archives), but I 
take care to be sure I link the statically-compiled openssh libraries.

USENET is *not* the non-clickable part of WWW!
