Bug resolved by Andy Polyakov at openssl.org:

Summary can be found at http://cvs.openssl.org/chngview?cn=14145. Point
is that I assumed that RC4_KEY structure initialized by RC4_set_key is
passed down to RC4 verbatim in its original memory location, while
OpenSSH takes freedom to swap the structures initialized in different
locations. One can argue that the latter is inappropriate design choice,
but it works on too many other platforms to argue. And so IA64 was
"reduced" to common denominator. Case dismissed. A.
