My suggestion previously was that the openssh port should just build upstream openssh + any patches that a maintainer wants to keep updated - since interest in forward-porting the gsskex and hpn patches always lags (significantly) new openssh releases.

If people want slowly-updated versions of openssh with one (or both) of those patches, they can go in a different port so that the vast majority of users can get the current version of openssh and it can be maintained  by someone who doesn't want/need/use those patches.
