It's in the base repos for SL, so it definitely should be appearing.  Without
a functioning xauth, I've never seen functional X forwarding.

I would be interested to know what ssh -Yv that-host-without-xauth shows.
Without xauth I get:

debug1: Remote: No xauth program; cannot forward with spoofing.
