SSHFS does not seem to be in the repository of the Amazon Linux AMI 2012.03.

So I tried from Source:

wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/fuse/fuse-2.X/2.9.1/fuse-2.9.1.tar.gz
tar xvzf fuse-2.9.1.tar.gz
cd fuse-2.9.1
sudo make install

But after that I still get -bash: sshfs: command not found

Any ideas ?

sshfs is not part of the fuse code. Please consult the homepage first, before trying to build stuff.

Thanks, I guess I was to tired... On this page sourceforge.net/projects/fuse/files/sshfs-fuse I read that "Looking for the latest version? Download fuse-2.9.1.tar.gz (559.7 kB)" So I thought I was downloading sshfs ... –  charles Sep 2 '12 at 8:09
