I'd thought to bring up the Frankenbox platform side of things, always a good stress tester of wild and crazy compatibility issues.


all tests passed


Northwood core Pentium 4, system started life as Slackware 9.1 i486 (no PAM, shadow/md5, pre-UNICODE)

Compiler: gcc-3.4.6 w/SSP patches
glibc: ancient (2.3.x)
Kernel: ancient (2.4.30-ish with OpenWall patches)
OpenSSL: 0.9.8y

(Don't ask.)

Configure line:

CC=gcc-3.4 CFLAGS='-O2 -s -mtune=pentium4 -march=pentium4' \
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc/ssh \
  --with-tcp-wrappers --with-privsep-user=sshd \
  --with-mantype=man --with-md5-passwords --with-ssl-dir=/usr \

Configure results:
