Oops sorry, misread the mail.

I can get the OpenSSH sftp client to work with dbclient on a
Linux system with
sftp -s /usr/lib/openssh/sftp-server -S /usr/bin/dbclient remotehost
though for some reason it seems not to work on Mac OS X
here - I'll try figure what's happening. Does that work for
you (with paths changed appropriately)? I assume the sftp
client will compile with similar settings to sftp-server.
