The ssh_config(1) manual page claims that the default list of MAC algorithms
supported by ssh(1) looks like this:


But '' doesn't actually work:

tron@lyssa:~>ssh -m colwyn
Unknown mac type ''

The other algorithms are really supported:

tron@lyssa:~>ssh -m hmac-ripemd160 colwyn

Welcome to NetBSD!


ssh -m <hostname>

We should either change the manual page or enable support for the
missing MAC algorithm.
