Yes, _that_ might be a problem...
On the other hand, maybe it would even be possible to check
out the current source for bssh (and maybe its dependencies)
and build them "off the track", i. e., not using the ports
infrastructure at all, and then manually copying the resulting
binary to the required place, as well as its libraries (unless
static linking has been enabled). It's worth having a look at
./configure's options to tune this approach.
