I suspect the problem is that you did not have xauth in your path when you
built OpenSSH and thus sshd does not know where to find it.  Try adding
"XAuthLocation /path/to/your/xauth" to your sshd_config and restart sshd.

If that doesn't help then please post the debug output from both client and
server (ie /path/to/sshd -ddd and ssh -vvv) and we might be able to figure
out what's going on.

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
