 Chroot sftp/scp user on MacOS X

Nice how-to type guide.

"The standard OpenSSH included in Mac OS X Panther does not support chroot. Largely, two ways are known as a chroot solution. The first is scponly (http://www.sublimation.org/scponly/) and the other is the chrootssh patch (http://chrootssh.sourceforge.net/). The directions below are for installing the "scponly" on Mac OS X 10.4.2 with Developer Tools (Xcode 2.1) installed.  I originally followed these directions in an attempt to get SFTP working, but they weren't quite right for Tiger.  With advice from people at macosxhints.com I re-wrote the directions to make more sense and switched to the scponly method, as it happens to be much easier to set up."
