pkgsrc/security/openssh assumes man pages are installed under ${MANDIR}/man?/.... (cf. pkgsrc/security/openssh/PLIST). On some operating systems (e.g. irix5*) openssh by default uses ${MANDIR}/can?/... and the canman format. Thus the man pages are not correctly packaged and reported as missing.
Another (unrelated) issue: openssh in its toplevel native configure adds -L/usr/local/lib and -I/usr/local/include for many platforms. This might cause conflicts at worst. It definitely does not conform to pkgsrc path philosophy. One might consider patching configure or get rid of these entries otherwise.
compile and install pkgsrc/security/openssh on a system for which openssh assumes MANTYPE=cat
To pkgsrc/security/openssh/Makefile add:

CONFIGURE_ARGS+=        --with-mantype=man

this should not be necessary on platform where this is default anyway, but it does not hurt there either.
