           Summary: OpenSSL engine support should be enabled by default
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 4.7p1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P3
         Component: Build system
        AssignedTo: bitbucket at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: openssh-bugs at lister.dnsalias.net

OpenSSH provides a --with-ssl-engine configure option to enable
OpenSSL's hardware crypto support. The default is not to enable it. I
don't see any reason not to enable it; it has no effect if no hardware
crypto devices are available. I believe the default should be to enable
it, and I even don't think it would be any loss to remove the configure
option altogether (i.e. to always enable it).
