    I read a post in the archive that has a similar problem with a ppc4xx
    target. The symptoms were very similar, I was able to ssh to it's own sshd
    but I cannot ssh from an x86 Linux box. It talks about recompiling openssl
    as well.

    So the next thing I did was an "openssl version -a", and lo and behold, an
    old version of the library was there and it was compiled for linux-elf. I
    trashed the old gunk in the filesystem, compiled the openssl library with
    "./Configure shared linux-ppc", and everything is happy again.

    Thanks for your pointer, I really appreciated it.
