I downloaded both the latest archived openssh src.rpms  for fc5 (4.3p2-4.12)  and fc6 (4.3p2-25) and compared the .patch files and the .spec files.   I tried to rebuild the fc5 package with all of the additional .patch files that the fc6 version used, but at least one of them was causing the compile to fail.  Rather than try to figure out which one was causing the problem,  I simplified the specs to just what  I thought I needed to get the auditing of ssh logout working.    I was successful in getting openssh 4.3p2-4.12 to compile with its standard patches plus the pam-session patch from the 4.3p2-25 src.rpm.   I then replaced the default 4.3p2-4.12 packages with my patched ones, and ssh logouts are  now successfully being audited.

What about using session required pam_selinux.so multiple
(not sure which is older) but from what I remember
the open and close option's just recently were being used,
or at least I started to notice these options.
