FWIW, I posted this question on freebsd.misc the other day, in an attempt
to tackle the same issue in a different way - maybe someone here can help
along these lines?

	I'd like to know the correct way to incorporate skey support into
	my sshd binary on R5.3. From /usr/src/crypto/openssh/INSTALL, I
	can see that the argument I need is --with-skey=PATH and I know
	that the makefiles are under /usr/src/secure, but I'm guessing
	that I should be able to add an entry to a top-level Makefile or
	Makefile.local, maybe even to /etc/make.conf before compiling and

My theory is that perhaps without PAM it will be ok?
