Thanks Chris,

I already did that, I think the problem is with the filename parameter in:

Key * key_load_private(const char *filename, const char *passphrase,
char **commentp)

This function returns NULL.

I'm not sure why it's pointing to a null filename, as I don't change
anything in the code.

I only add a prefix to configure, even though I did this on iPhone, do
you think this problem is related to platform differences ?
