Neither idea works and I don't think we are using the same version of sshd
(your must be from ports or something mine is from base)... because the
same section of the man page reads nothing like what you posted:
Specifies the file that contains the public keys used for user
authentication. The format is described in the AUTHORIZED_KEYS
FILE FORMAT section of sshd(8). Arguments to
accept the tokens described in the TOKENS section. After
expansion, AuthorizedKeysFile is taken to be an absolute path
one relative to the user's home directory. Multiple files may
listed, separated by whitespace. Alternately this option may
set to none to skip checking for user keys in files. The
is ".ssh/authorized_keys .ssh/authorized_keys2".
