    In case I confuse some of you. "-x" and "-X" options of "ssh-keygen" are
    specific to SUN's version of SSH which is derived from OpenSSH.

    For OpenSSH, they are "-e" and "-i". I don't know what they are in
    Fsecure's or SSH-Comm's versions, look it up.

    $ man -M /usr/local/man ssh-keygen
