The test phase (like most other phases) doesn't run as root by default.

When you run `port test` it's failing because it can't read ssh-keysign which has "-rws--x--x  1 root  admin" permissions (so it /can't/ work).

You can - stop setting ' yes' since that's the port advertising that 'port test' will work (and it doesn't), tell macports to run the test phase as root (test.asroot yes should work here, but when I did a quick test it didn't and I didn't have a chance to see why), or alter the openssh tests/build to not need to be run as root.
