How to get /etc/ssh back

I "mistakenly" deleted /etc/ssh along with all of the keyfiles and, most 
importantly, ssd_config.  I was attempting to completely 
remove/reinstall openssh.

I've tried both the port and package.  The install program doesn't 
complain that there is no /etc/ssh.  I had assumed that it would create 
it but it evidently does not.

The system does ask for entropy upon the next reboot but the generation 
of the keys and startup of sshd fail since there is no /etc/ssh.

If the install program doesn't create /etc/ssh, what does and how do I 
get it back?
