 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.
