glad to hear it.

someone more familiar with the package might be able to help. does the
configure script hang at the same place if you run it manually?

I think something in the build process subtly changed between openssh
3.7 and 3.7.1.

the problem was the combination of the included Makefile calling ${LD}
directly, setting it to ${CC} if not set, and the fact that pkgsrc
sets it.

I have no idea why the openssh build process calls ${LD} under the
assumption that it is really the compiler, not the linker.
