not quite... I had problems with OpenSSH calling login_cap and getting
nothing back which produced errors like so:
Jan 8 15:24:59 kaben2 sshd: Accepted rsa for aaron from 10.0.0.202 port 1022
Jan 8 15:24:59 kaben2 sshd: error: unable to get login class
I "fixed" it by disabling use of login_cap routines in OpenSSH.
an example login.conf in /usr/share/examples would be very helpful.
