It fails to build on IRIX 6.2:

cc-1020 cc: ERROR File = sftp-server.c, Line = 1536
   The identifier "PR_SET_DUMPABLE" is undefined.

         if (prctl(PR_SET_DUMPABLE, 0) != 0)

1 error detected in the compilation of "sftp-server.c".

AFAIK no version of IRIX has PR_SET_DUMPABLE.

Fixing that, the build completes.

The sshkey unit test fails:
test_sshkey: ...........................
regress/unittests/sshkey/test_sshkey.c:338 test #28 "nested certificate"
ASSERT_INT_EQ(sshkey_load_cert(test_data_file("rsa_1"), &k1), 0) failed:
sshkey_load_cert(test_data_file("rsa_1"), &k1) = -4
            0 = 0
make[1]: *** [unit] Error 134

The rest of the testsuite is running now but so far it looks like the 
problems there are the same as previous releases.
