Yes, I knew that, but at least it doesn't wait for you to answer.  It's
the best I can offer.

Works for me:

  [johnc@nospam.dropbear ~]$ ssh -V
  OpenSSH_2.5.2p2, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x0090581f

  [johnc@nospam.dropbear ~]$ ssh -o StrictHostKeyChecking=ask dropbear
  The authenticity of host 'dropbear (' can't be established.
  RSA1 key fingerprint is 8f:c7:dd:11:0d:49:c4:53:80:08:70:b8:4c:4c:7c:df.
  Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?
