I've already done that, use:
deb http://people.easter-eggs.org/~manu/debian/ ssh/

in /etc/apt/sources.list

it contains also a backport of openssl095a wich is teh minimum required for compiling ssh 2.9


This is the sid package with chroot patch applied and with a few modifications on default config:

sshd_config: PermitRootLogin: no
debconf: by default propose to install nosetuid root




Manu.
