This was an attempt to build an empty user-installable package
(openssh-installer) that depends on a non-user-installable package
(ssh).  The attempt wasn't successful because these two packages come
from different repositories, and a single .install file cannot add two
repostitories at once.

I you have the maemo repository (the SDK one) added to your app
installer, you ought to be able to use this method to get OpenSSH.
