Comment (by kencu):

 yes, looks like that header didn't exist until MacOSX10.6.sdk:

 So in this situation, you need to do some sleuthing... when did openssh
 change to need that header? Is there an acceptable older version available
 that didn't need that header that can do what you need? Is there an option
 in openssh that lets you avoid that header somehow (probably there is --
 that is a Mac-OS specific header and there is sure to be another pathway
 for linux systems that might work for Leopard? Can you hack around that
 header in some way, replacing what it is looking for with something
 similar that can do the same job?

 The easy way out is to just say "10.6 and greater only" and disable it
 from building on 10.5 and less, but that is cheating :>
