"/usr/local/etc/ssh_host_key". Take a look into your /etc/sshd_config
file. There is probably a line

	HostKey /usr/local/etc/ssh_host_key

Comment it with `#' or remove the line or change it to

	HostKey /etc/ssh_host_key

Your sshd_config file is from an older version. The older
`ssh-config' created the above HostKey line pointing to
/usr/local/etc by mistake.
