I've had a look at the test suite and it looks that sudo and
gdb can be used also to complete some tests:
"agent-ptrace.sh" requires gdb
and "agent-getpeereid.sh" requires sudo to run some tests using an
unprivileged user (nobody). If sudo is installed then the test command
should change to:
SUDO=sudo make tests 2>&1 | tee check.log
or to run a sed to regress/test-exec.sh to uncomment the variable.

Perhaps, it will be too much if we put all these in the openssh page, or
this information should go in the wiki, but at least we should mention the
dependencies for the test suite.
