Package: openssh-client
Version: 1:4.3p2-7
Severity: normal

Sftp ignores -o options so you can't set alternative port or another ssh
options. This command wouldn't work:

sftp login@host -oPort=1234

You must use alternative config with Port option:

echo "Port 1234" > ~/.ssh/sftp
sftp login@host

SSH client accept -o options so I think we have little bug...

The man page says:

     sftp [-1Cv] [-B buffer_size] [-b batchfile] [-F ssh_config]
          [-o ssh_option] [-P sftp_server_path] [-R num_requests]
          [-S program] [-s subsystem | sftp_server] host
     sftp [[user@]host[:file [file]]]
     sftp [[user@]host[:dir[/]]]
     sftp -b batchfile [user@]host

As documented, options come first, so use 'sftp -oPort=1234 login@host'.
Relaxing this could change behaviour for people using the second usage
format to copy files beginning with '-', so I'd rather not.
