I believe SSH service should be run by root.
Did you do run "/usr/local/etc/init.d/openssh start" as superuser ?

I run it with sudo command,

I "fixed" it by adding below before starting ssh,

sudo /usr/local/bin/ssh-keygen -A

the openssh init.d script contains:
Code: [Select]
keygen(){
   ssh-keygen -t rsa -f /usr/local/etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key
   ssh-keygen -t dsa -f /usr/local/etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key
}
