Partial install question

Hi, folks,

     I've got an older server which can't be upgraded to a current OS for
$REASONS on which I need to update some or all of the openssh programs and
utilities, specifically sftp.

     My thought is to either install it in /usr/local (or
/usr/local/openssh) and have folks alter their paths, or build it there and
use symlinks (probably the better choice) into /usr/bin.

     I'm tempted, though, to just move /usr/bin/sftp and install that and
only that, if possible. Is it?
