Add a deb-src line to /etc/apt/sources.list, pointing to unstable,
something like:
deb-src ftp://ftp.fti.debian.org/debian-non-US unstable non-US/main
non-US/contrib non-US/non-free

Then, do 
apt-get update
apt-get -b source ssh

Quite likely the build fails first if you don't have all the libraries
and -dev packets the build needs. You can continue in openssh-2.9b2
directory with dpkg-buildpackage, for example.

This leaves you with custom ssh packages: this is the only way until 
the new version is backported.
