OpenSSH works fine on UnixWare 7.x/OpenUNIX 8
I have 7.1.1 & 7.1.4 running here.

Keep in mind you will need to build OpenSSL first.
I migrated off of 7.1.2 to 7.1.3 back in Dec 2003 and I can't remember if
it has a built-in random number generator (/dev/random, /dev/urandom).
If I remember correctly, 7.1.2 was the first release to have it. Check on
your system. If it doesn't have it, you'll need to build/install prng then
build/install OpenSSL, then OpenSSH.
