I installed openssh for redhat 7.3 but no /etc/ssh/ssh_config file was made

I recently installed openssh on my computer that runs redhat 7.3 from the rpm: openssh-3.1p1-14.i386.rpm. ssh works fine, but the rpm did not create a /etc/ssh/ssh_config file. I also looked in ~/.ssh/ and there is no config file. I posted a thread previously about having a problem using scp which gave the following error

scp: warning: Executing scp1.
scp: FATAL: Executing ssh1 in compatibility mode failed (Check that scp1 is in your PATH).
lost connection

I think this is due to the fact that I don't have the ssh_config file. Does anyone know why ssh_config would not have been created when installing openssh-3.1p1-14.i386.rpm.? Is there a way to get this file from somewhere else?

I looked through some of the RPM's on my RH8 system. ssh-client creates /etc/ssh/ssh_config. I think you don't have all the packages that you need.

[gabe@keizan ssh]$ rpm -qa | grep openssh

[gabe@keizan ssh]$ rpm -q openssh-clients --list | grep /etc/ssh/ssh_config
