  I built tdelibs and tdebase and tested sftp. There is GOOD news and BAD news.
The good new - I can connect with sftp!! The bad news - the kio is not reading
host/port information from ~/.ssh/config. This requires that you manually
specify a port (if not 22) where sftp:// used to read this information from the
HOST/PORT information contained in ~/.ssh/config. Eg:

Host arete
Port 6629
Host fax
Port 6631

  I don't know what reads this file, but it is read currently when fish:// is
invoked and it was previously read by sftp:// before this bug appeared. Any idea
where this occurs?
