Upgrading OpenSSH on Red Hat 7.1 server

Hi all,

I'm running Red Hat 7.1 on an Alpha and I'd like to upgrade to the
latest to fix any security problems.  I currently have 3.1p1-2 but I'd
like to upgrade to the latest version.  Is there a quick way of
upgrading this?

When I checked on www.openssh.com, they say 3.7.1 is the latest
version, but when I select Linux from the left menu, it talks about
Portable OpenSSH.  Is this the same thing as 3.7.1?  I'd prefer to
install from RPM's if possible.  Also, running on an Alpha... will
this cause problems?

Thanks for any advice.  This is a production server behind a firewall,
and other then wu-ftp and soon sftp (once openssh is upgraded) that's
all that hits the Internet.

There's a spec file included in the OpenSSH tarball from openssh.org.

I was able to build an rpm from openssh-3.7.1p2 using this spec file on my
RH7.2 machine.
