the putty problem is what what caused me to start looking at the new
openssh,  I was able to do the usual ssh into the aix system just as
normal, but when one of our engineers tried to use putty to get into
the aix system it failed and timed out.  What I noticed is that it
never got to the point where it would make an entry for ssh in the
windows registry.

The compiles of both the 5.2 32 bit and the 6.1 64 bit have been
working fine for quite a while. The last ones I made successfully were

bach:/opt/freeware/src/packages/SOURCES/openssh-6.0p1> ssh -V
OpenSSH_5.9p1, OpenSSL 1.0.0h 12 Mar 2012

the compiler that I use is xlc_r

bach:/opt/freeware/src/packages/SOURCES/openssh-6.0p1> lslpp -La |grep
-i xlc
  xlC.adt.include      C     F    C Set ++ Application
  xlC.aix50.rte        C     F    XL C/C++ Runtime for
AIX 5.2
  xlC.cpp              C     F    C for AIX
  xlC.rte              C     F    XL C/C++ Runtime

the make tests gets to the ssh-keygen section and hangs 

next I re-installed the openssl 1.0.0h, recompiled the latest openssh.

</opt/freeware/src/packages/SOURCES/openssh-6.0p1> ./ssh -V
OpenSSH_6.0p1, OpenSSL 1.0.0h 12 Mar 2012

I ran the make tests and it completed with a "all tests passed".

I am now running the make test on the openssl and when it gets to the

 Generating a 2048 bit RSA private key

it seems to go into a endless loop of some sort. 

So I am thinking my problem is with the latest openssl not openssh.

I compiled the same openssl code on our aix 6.1/64 system and it ran
the make test resulting with a "ALL TESTS SUCCESSFUL".

so I think you can close this call and i will talk to the openssl
