openssh-SNAP-20120221 fails to build on FreeBSD 9 and 10: the configure
script incorrectly concludes that FreeBSD doesn't have openpty(3), and
bsd-openpty.c doesn't build on FreeBSD.  See

The same snapshot builds fine and passes all tests on 8.2p3.

BTW, what about my ssh-agent reference-counting patch?  :)
