Description W. Trevor King 2013-12-29 04:20:02 UTC
On a fresh amd64 stage3:

  # emerge -v1 net-analyzer/munin
  # emerge --config net-analyzer/munin
  …
  Generating public/private rsa key pair.
  …
  unknown key type ecdsa

Ideally the munin config should catch the failure and fall back to just RSA keys.  See #390937, #402441, and #488814 for more about openssh[-bindist] not supporting ECDSA keys.
