For one thing, Apple hasn't updated their version of OpenSSH for years.
Which patches they backport is anyone's guess. They certainly haven't
backported control socket mastering.

Likewise for OpenSSL. Basically, Apple ceased all Unix environment
development the moment OS X shipped. Soon porting Unix apps to OS X will be
as fun as to Microsoft's POSIX interface.
