ssh with suid is required to log on to servers that use .rhosts for 
authentication, so this would be disabled.  Since I set up both the client and 
the server, I know the .rhosts is not used and the --disable-suid-ssh makes 
sense.

The documentation states "The root privileges are only used to make the 
connection (from a privileged socket).  Any extra privileges are dropped before 
calling ssh_login.".

I'm for putting it into configure, with a note in explanations on the effects.
