Okay here goes,

1. Download the ssh source code from here:

ftp://ftp.ssh.com/pub/ssh/

2. Once you have downloaded the source, gunzip it and untar it:

: dserna@ns:/extra: gunzip ssh-1.2.27.tar.gz  
: dserna@ns:/extra: tar xvf ssh-1.2.27.tar  
x ssh-1.2.27, 0 bytes, 0 tape blocks
x ssh-1.2.27/COPYING, 16879 bytes, 33 tape blocks
x ssh-1.2.27/README, 22132 bytes, 44 tape blocks
<snip>

3. Then cd into the ssh-1.2.27 directory and execute a script called "configure: which will check what type of system you have, etc.:

: dserna@ns:/extra/ssh-1.2.27: ./configure
creating cache ./config.cache
<snip>

4. Once that is done, then run "make" in the same directory. This will compile ssh:

: dserna@ns:/extra/ssh-1.2.27: make
gcc -pipe -c -I.  -I./gmp-2.0.2-ssh-2 -I./zlib-1.0.4 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H  -DHOST_KEY_FILE=\"/etc/ssh_host_key\" -DHOST_CONFIG_FILE=\"/etc/ssh_config\" -DSERVER_CONFIG_FILE=\"/etc/sshd_config\" -DSSH_PROGRAM=\"/usr/local/bin/ssh1\" -DETCDIR=\"/etc\" -DPIDDIR=\"/etc\" -DSSH_BINDIR=\"/usr/local/bin\" -DTIS_MAP_FILE=\"/etc/sshd_tis.map\" -g -O2 -I/usr/openwin/include ssh.c

5. Now su to root and run "make install" in the ssh directory:

: dserna@ns:/extra/ssh-1.2.27: su
Password:
: root@ns:/extra/ssh-1.2.27: make install

6.This will install the now compiled binaries. Once that is done,  a script will run which will create the host key. Just follow the instructions. Once that finishes, you should just run the sshd daemon:

: root@ns:/extra/ssh-1.2.27: /usr/local/sbin/sshd
: root@ns:/extra/ssh-1.2.27:
: root@ns:/extra/ssh-1.2.27: ps -aef | grep sshd
    root  7940     1 15 10:19:07 ?        0:03 /usr/local/sbin/sshd

You should now be able to ssh into your machine.

Hope that helps. :)

How great to see this clear answer! My situation is quite same with BRAUN. But now I can get a 2.3.0. Is it same? How about the windows part? I heard that it can use Putty.exe as the SSH client. Is it right? Thanks!
