NetBSD, and the other BSDs (that I'm aware of) don't use a package
manager for the base software. So you aren't removing the base ssh
software (which is openssh), you're just not starting it at boot time.

Build and install openssh if you must. The new startup script will be
/usr/pkg/share/examples/rc.d/sshd. Copy the existing /etc/rc.d/sshd to
another name, then put in the new one from examples, and restart using
/etc/rc.d/sshd restart.

Doesn't matter, all NetBSD works the same.
