Changes to OpenSSH for NetWare

Too much to audit before 3.6  .. WAY too much.  I seem semi-questionable
thing and other items that should be considered in every platform.  Plus
debugging code that should have been stripped.

This patch the way it stands would make it even harder for us to keep
merged with the OpenBSD tree.  Consider revisiting it with the idea that
you touch the least amount of code within the main tree and using
openbsd-compat/port-netware.[ch] when you can logically do it.  I believe
I asked you this last time you posted.

Also I see stray sprintf() wandering around.  We prefer snprinf() (same
goes with strncpy() to strlcpy()).

BTW.. error(); exit();  should be fatal();
