No problem, I was just wondering if Debian had some kind of weird 
interdependency :-)

I have added the following paragraph:

"X11 forwarding requires a working xauth(1) binary. On OpenBSD this is 
in the xbase file set but will probably be different on other platforms. 
For OpenSSH Portable, xauth must be either found at configure time or 
specified via XAuthLocation in sshd_config(5) and ssh_config(5)."

     Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
