    I seem to recall from some other posts from you on another list that you
    are running HP-UX 11.0. On our HP systems there were several commands in
    the /opt/ssh/etc/ssh_prng_cmds that had some significant delay on them.
    In particular:

    df -i
    sar -d
    ipcs -a

    Once these were removed, the ssh login process proceeded MUCH faster.
