 Just compiled OpenSSH 5.5p1 against OpenSSL 1.0.0 and Linux-PAM 1.1.1 and
 have a few notes about the test suite.

 after make, test suite is failing during the test of multiple.sh with the
 following error:[[BR]]
 "test connection multiplexing: transfer[[BR]]
 scp: failed copy /bin/ls[[BR]]
 cmp: /sources/openssh-5.5p1/regress/ls.copy: No such file or
 scp: corrupted copy of /bin/ls[[BR]]
 failed connection multiplexing[[BR]]
 make[1]: *** [t-exec] Error 1[[BR]]
 make[1]: Leaving directory `/sources/openssh-5.5p1/regress'[[BR]]
 make: *** [tests] Error 2"[[BR]]

 Found a workaround in the BLFS mail archives (see
 dev/2008-February/018019.html]), which suggested installing openssh and
 re-running test suite.  Test suite passed once openssh was installed.

 One of the test is being skipped for some reason and can be enabled by
 doing "export SUDO=<path to sudo>":
 "run test agent-getpeereid.sh ...[[BR]]
 skipped: need SUDO to switch to uid nobody"[[BR]]
 This test passed for me only when openssh was installed.
