What sshd is/was it running? 
Since the local system could be compromised you want to start logging all 
traffic to and from the host in question, but do this from a different 
system, use ethereal, iptables, snort, etc. Chkrootkit's detection algorithm 
is signature based (much like a virus scanner), so its effectiveness if 
questionable. Using data integrity checks (check out AIDE: 
<http://www.cs.tut.fi/~rammer/aide.html> ) at build can help you in 
situations like this, but you probably don't want to hear that now :/
