SUMMARY: Solaris 10 encryption

Thanks to the numerous people who helped me out with this. In summary:-

Several people advised me to compile against a local version of OpenSSL.
I knew I could do this, but was trying to avoid maintaining a local copy
as Sun do ship OpenSSL with Solaris 10.

The packages I was looking for are available for download from SUN -

The package is called the "Solaris 10 Encryption kit".

Unfortunately they don't replace the system libs with ones that include
the 256 bit functions - they simply provide additional libraries with
just those functions, which makes linking against them more awkward.

For those that wondered why the Sun SSH wasn't OK, I'm trying to do some
scripting that needs SendEnv/AcceptEnv to work the way I want it too,
and the Sun fork hasn't pulled in those options from OpenSSH.
