SSH problem partially solved!! Still need help.

	Ok, I finally figured out why my configs weren't loading for 
ssh.  Apparently when you startup SSHD it loads some weird default 
sshd_config file that I can't seem to find.  However, if I specify "sshd -f 
/etc/ssh/sshd_config" it will load my config file and my ssh works the way 
it should.  Now I can obviously edit my /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ file to 
do this on startup, but it's baffling the living heck out of me as to why 
sshd doesn't load the default /etc/ssh/sshd_config file when you load it 
from the command prompt by typing "/usr/sbin/sshd".

	Anyone got any idea what setting in the system dictates to sshd what the 
default config file is?  I'm guessing that there's gotta be something I'm 
missing somewhere as to why sshd isn't loading the default config file like 
it should short of specifying it by hand.
