[arch-ports] [PPC] One Last Bug Report For the List!

The bug tracker on bugs.archlinuxppc.org is still broken (can't submit
bugs.) I'll post this here.

It seems that the openssh package was broken when it was built. The
problem is that it contains hardcoded strings to the wrong xauth. This
breaks X11 forwarding (to and from) unless a corrected address is
inserted in the config files.

> $ pacman -Qo /usr/bin/xauth /usr/bin/ssh /usr/sbin/sshd

Wrong path here:
> /usr/X11R6/bin/xauth
> xauthlocation
> No xauth program.
> %s/xauthfile
> Warning: No xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11 forwarding.
> $ strings /usr/sbin/sshd | grep xauth
and again here:

> xauthlocation
> maxauthtries
> No xauth program; cannot forward with spoofing.

Package needs a rebuild.
