The sftp command should use the native glob()
The sftp command currently does globbing with a private copy of the BSD glob() function. Once bug #1097 is resolved, sftp can use the native glob() function in libc instead. Note that only sftp does globbing. The scp, ssh, and sshd executables do not need it.

This turned out to be pretty easy to do. The only complication was that I had to remove glob.h from the ssh source. As far as I could tell, this was the only way to resolve the header file conflict. The static library was no problem because it could be built without the private glob() function once the proper symbols were defined.
