Hello, Ceri!
I'll do all the necessary changes and will send the updated patch to you 
and to the lists.

There is a patch for the openssh-portable port here:

I'll make a patch to the standard openssh distribution to commit it to 
the official openssh source-tree and will send you a copy.
Actually, It's not hard to add nsswitch support to the particular 
application - we need to find the places in the code, where lookups are 
done and substitute them with nsdispatch calls. The old code is 
refactored to meet the nsswitch module standards.

>Thanks again for working on this.
I'm really enjoying doing it :)
