Can I find out the version of a sshd without starting the service?

Is there a command e.g. like:

/etc/init.d/sshd -version


/lib/svc/method/sshd -version


On a Linux system, try "/usr/sbin/sshd --help". And if it's an RPM
managed Linux system, "rpm -q openssh".

Readhing the manpage is also helpful for this sort of thing: "man
sshd" would have revealed that there is no specific "verson"
illuminating command, but the output of the "sshd" command with
unfortunate arguments is rather helpful.
