hmm. i've just glanced at the openssh hint and it says the following:

--disable-suid-ssh

Note that I install the
ssh binary -not- suid root. Root priviledges are needed by the client only
when using rhosts for authentication, which requires ssh to bind to a
priviledged port. Since rhosts is an old, deprecated authentication method,
insecure by design, I'm not using it, and neither should you.

Opinions, Larry?
