The 20140819 snapshot successfully builds and passes the tests on RHEL
6.5/x86_64 w/OpenSSL 1.0.1i.

Regarding the removal of TCP wrapper support, it would be good to remove
references to it in the contrib/*/openssh.spec files:

% egrep -i 'netkit|wrapper|tcpd' */openssh.spec
caldera/openssh.spec:            --with-tcp-wrappers \
redhat/openssh.spec:BuildRequires: perl, openssl-devel, tcp_wrappers
redhat/openssh.spec:    --with-tcp-wrappers \
suse/openssh.spec:#   TCP Wrappers (tcpd-devel),
suse/openssh.spec:BuildPrereq:  tcpd-devel
suse/openssh.spec:- Added flag to configure daemon with TCP Wrappers
suse/openssh.spec:              --with-tcp-wrappers \

There are also references to tcpd or libwrap in INSTALL and
contrib/cygwin/README that should probably be removed or revised.
