Description of problem:
Customer is requesting, for security reasons, that we add chroot capability to our sshd server, more specifically for sftp.
Upstream OpenSSH software version 4.9 recently incorporated this feature.
See release notes and man pages:
Can we backport this feature into our current version of the openssh-server package for RHEL?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use of current OpenSSH RHEL software
No chroot environment built in configuration options.
An openssh-server capable of built in chroot configuration options.
Given the state of maintenance of RHEL-4 I am not sure this is appropriate
feature for backport. It would also have to be backported to RHEL-5 first so we
wouldn't regress feature-wise.

Would you consider backporting it to RHEL5, Thomas?
Yes, it will be part of 5.4 if QA goes well. See bug 440420
