And if for any reason you hit one too many CTRL-D's while you do this,
you're shagged ;-)
My routine is :
1. SSH in.
2. wget the latest package from the homepage
3. Configure and make, ensuring that I include such things as PAM support
4. run the binary on a spare port (-p portno) and ssh in to test that user
auth, etc. is all working)
5. When happy with above, *then* find the parent sshd process, slaughter it
and immediately run the one you've just compiled to take it's place.
This procedure allows me to maintain multiple boxen, linux and freebsd, from
New Zealand, and I haven't had to phone anyone yet ;-)
