make sure to read the docs and check the section on PAM if you are
building on linux (since most/all? recent distros are using PAM).
without PAM support on a PAM host, you'll get weird authentication
problems.

it's --enable-pam or --with-pam to configure (one of the two, i'm too
lazy to check), then you need to copy the redhat sample pam file to
/usr/local/etc (or whatever your install root is).

make install will generate an ssh1 host key, if you want to use ssh2 or
both, just generate one with ssh-keygen (look at the makefile for the
syntax for ssh2). then in your sshd_config file, reference both host
keys, ie:
HostKey /usr/local/etc/ssh_host_key
HostKey /usr/local/etc/ssh2_host_key
