 'Illegal instruction' probably means it is trying to do something
your processor doesn't support.  Are you perhaps on an early via
processor (e.g. C3, which is i686, but not supporting an (optional)
instruction that gcc thinks is mandatory for i686 ?).

 Possibly, you can rebuild openssh with
 'CFLAGS="-march=i586 -O2" ./configure'

das eine Mal als Tragödie, das andere Mal als Farce
