Hi, I am using x86_64 arch and so configure does not find my sftp-server binary. Why? Because it searches in /usr/lib/, not in /usr/lib64/.

I createtd a patch to have configure look at the very place where the info about the locaton of sftp-server is stored - in /etc/ssh/sshd_config.

The patch should work on all systems where grep and awk are found in the PATH and that have installed the ssh daemon package (since this package includes sftp-server).

diff -u ./configure.orig ./configure gives following output:

    The openSUSE Build System told me that my patch was not enough - sure, it works for root only :-( So I extended the patch, since scp was not found on some SUSE variants. The new patch is attached, the old one is deleted.
