That's not a bad idea in itself, since the longer you wait, the harder the 
upgrade track becomes, but in the meantime, you can use 
security/openssh-portable port. From it's pkg-message:

To enable this port, add openssh_enable="YES" in your rc.conf. To
prevent conflict with openssh in the base system add sshd_enable="NO"
in your rc.conf.


Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
    and never get to the software part.
