Did you create a directory called /var/empty too? I wouldn't fiddle with /var ownership or permissions unless you're still stuck after trying that.

I'm surprised the ssh-host-config script didn't do this for you if it's required... I've looked at the script and the commands to do it are in there, are you sure you followed that step?

Try chown 0 /var/empty instead perhaps.
