Actually, debug mode didn't help much, but looking at
/var/log/secure showed right away that permissions was the
problem.

I had checked the permissions many times, and they were the same as
on my old computers.  However, I finally discovered that they are
supposed to be:
chmod 700 .ssh
chmod 600 .ssh/*
and it seems that this rule is now being enforced.  (I don't know
what the range of possibilities is, but these work.)

Thanks.  Jon
