The aptitude listing for sshfs says, in part:

	sshfs is based on FUSE (userspace filesystem framework for
	Linux), thus you will have to prepare fuse kernel module to be
	able to use it.

Since OpenBSD doesn't do kernel modules, its not likely to accept a
linux kernel module :)

However, I've never used sshfs.  If I need to transfer files in a
semi-gui way, I use mc (midnight commander)'s ssh vfs (shell link).  It
may do what you want.
