OpenSSH is available in it's home page: http://www.openssh.org/portable.html

However, I do beleive you'll need the same packages that Sun's does.
* The perl one is for the compilation of openssl and openssh.
* Zlib may also come with the openssh's source, but anyway it's required for
compressed connections.
* OpenSSL (http://www.openssl.org/) provides the necessary cryptographic
funtions for openssh to operate (authenticate & encrypt)
* prndg provides strong cryptographic random data and is very recommended
for secure connections.

All in all, I'd recommend Sun's package.
