ssh problem

I have just installed ssh 3.9. When I ssh localhost (or some other host) I get:

ssh_askpass: exec(/usr/local/libexec/ssh-askpass): No such file or directory
Host key verification failed.

Itīs seems like the file is missing. Any ideas? (I have tried the google-solution)

You probably have SSH_ASKPASS environment variable set.
And it seems it refers to an unexistent file. (see man ssh for the meaning of SSH_ASKPASS).
