openssh-unix-dev: Bug found in openssh 5.8p1 source

Bug found in openssh 5.8p1 source

From: Rick Stevens <ricks_at_nospam>
Date: Wed May 18 2011 - 02:19:40 GMT

I was compiling the 5.8p1 source for CentOS 5.6 by installing the
CentOS 5.6 source RPM for 4.3p2 and stealing the configure command
they use to ensure I had all the same bits. I needed this to chroot
some SFTP users and need the "Match" operator. The configure went well
(once I had satisfied all the requirements).

Upon compiling, however, I hit a syntax error in one of the files.
In "openbsd-compat/port-linux.c", line 216 is missing an opening "{".

Just thought you should know.
