    I guess I am asking are the tcp wrappers enabled in the default base
    system? If the wrappers are not enabled, do I need to build world with
    some special compile option?

    Or build ssh from the port? If the port is used do I then need to
    reconfigure anything in the system to use the port version instead of the
    base system ssh?

    Thanks for your help.
