The problem is the same, the solution (using SSH_ASKPASS) is the same.
A similar problem exists for xauth where the solution is to configure
the sshd accordingly for a pkgsrc based X11.

I don't see how the problem could be solved without such manual
configuration. ssh prefers to have a single hard coded default,
a search path is probably considered a security issue.
