Good to know.
If I remember well long time ago on OS X deprecate a number of 
open-source software including OpenSSL.

I have to add more detailed message because X.506 certificate could be 
presented differently - quote from client session
(recent version)
debug1: Offering RSA+cert public key: tests/CA/testid_rsa-rsa_sha1
debug3: send_pubkey_test: x509v3-sign-rsa
debug1: Server accepts key: pkalg x509v3-sign-rsa blen 1952
debug1: read X.509 certificate done: type RSA+cert
debug3: ssh_x509_sign: key alg/type/name: 
debug3: send packet: type 50
debug3: receive packet: type 52

More lines to watch ...
debug2: input_userauth_request: try method publickey
debug3: Xkey_from_blob() pkalg='x509v3-sign-rsa', blen=1952
debug3: x509_to_key: X509_get_pubkey done!
debug1: userauth_pubkey: test whether pkalg/pkblob are acceptable for 
RSA+cert SHA256:<...DIGEST...>
debug3: userauth_pubkey: have signature for RSA+cert SHA256:<...DIGEST...>
debug2: userauth_pubkey: authenticated 1 pkalg x509v3-sign-rsa
Accepted publickey for ... from ... port ... ssh2: RSA+cert 
debug3: send packet: type 52
