eg. revision 1.23:

"avoid use of OpenSSL BIGNUM type and functions for KEX with
Curve25519 by adding a buffer_put_bignum2_from_string() that stores
a string using the bignum encoding rules. Will make it easier to
build a reduced-feature OpenSSH without OpenSSL in the future;
ok markus@"


I hope that it will be possible to build a small version of sshd
without OpenSSL. Any news on this topic are welcome.
