ssh 3.2.5 ignores /etc/default/login CONSOLE line

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


I'm compiling SSH 3.2.5 on SGI's IRIX 6.5.20 and the CONSOLE line of
the /etc/default/login (to deny root from login in) I don't want to
use PermitRootLogin=no since I wan't to be able to ssh commands
as root on the server. Any hints onto why SSH is able to ignore
/etc/default/login since in the output of configure, it acknowledges
finding the file.
