Data Ssh installation error "RSA key generation failed"

While trying to upgrade ssh from v4.7 to v5.0 on AIX 5.3 TL9, I end up with the following error.


Quote:
RSA key generation failed
instal: Failed while executing the ./openssh.base.server.post_i script.


0503-464 installp: The installation has FAILED for the "root" part
of the following filesets:
openssh.base.server 5.0.0.5302

installp: Cleaning up software for:
openssh.base.server 5.0.0.5302

Has anyone come across this?

Note: openssl has been upgraded to 0.9.8.840 before this upgrade

NAME
RSA_generate_key - generate RSA key pair SYNOPSIS
#include <openssl/rsa.h> RSA *RSA_generate_key(int num, unsigned long e, void (*callback)(int,int,void *), void *cb_arg); DESCRIPTION
RSA_generate_key() generates a key pair and returns it in a newly allocated RSA structure. The pseudo-random number generator must be seeded prior to calling RSA_generate_key(). The modulus size will be num bits, and the public exponent will be e. Key sizes with num < 1024 should be considered insecure. The exponent is an odd number, typically 3, 17 or 65537. A callback function may be used to provide feedback about the progress of the key generation. If callback is not NULL, it will be called as follows: o While a random prime number is generated, it is called as described in BN_generate_prime(3). o When the n-th randomly generated prime is rejected as not suitable for the key, callback(2, n, cb_arg) is called. o When a random p has been found with p-1 relatively prime to e, it is called as callback(3, 0, cb_arg). The process is then repeated for prime q with callback(3, 1, cb_arg). RETURN VALUE
If key generation fails, RSA_generate_key() returns NULL; the error codes can be obtained by ERR_get_error(3). BUGS
callback(2, x, cb_arg) is used with two different meanings. RSA_generate_key() goes into an infinite loop for illegal input values. SEE ALSO
ERR_get_error(3), rand(3), rsa(3), RSA_free(3) HISTORY
The cb_arg argument was added in SSLeay 0.9.0. 1.0.1e 2013-02-11 RSA_generate_key(3)
