 I guess you activated --with-phyp which currently requires libssh,
but this will be fixed in the future, the result is just that that
driver gets desactivated for now if you don't have libssh

Thanks Daniel. I'm a bit foreign to this "Power Hypervisor" thing, but if I'm not wrong from the information that I got from this site:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/systems/scope/hw/index.jsp?topic=/iphb2/iphb2hypervisor.htm

than it's nothing that we support in Pardus at the moment. In fact, we only support KVM in our libvirt at the moment, possibly virtualbox in the future.

In this case, I'm disabling this pyhp as well as the libssh dependency.

Thanks a lot for the info and let me know if my understanding is wrong :)
