oh, I bet it is not finding /etc/moduli whereever it expects it and
falling back to dh.c:dh_new_group14()

Darren - I'm not sure this test will work correctly before installation
and we have no sshd_config(5) ModuliFile option to work around this.
Maybe we should disable it for release? Or make it "test -f /etc/moduli"
