(i think i have wrote similar item couple of times)
current situation is like this:
current: 2.3.2 as of 2/14
1.5: 2.2.0 with patch against razor advisory
pkgsrc/security/openssh: portable openssh 2.3.0p1
pkgsrc/security/ssh: ssh.com ssh 1.2.27 + patch against razor advisory
i've requested a pullup from current to 1.5 branch.
