It's wierd, I do a:
./configure --without-libidn --with-libssh2=<my ssh2 directory>

The Configure command displays the following line:
     SSH support: enabled (libSSH2)

So it seems like it worked. Right?

Wrong. A quick look at the libcurl.pc shows that -lssh2 is not incldude in
the list of libraries to link with:

Libs.private: -lssl -lcrypto -lldap -lrt -lsocket -lnsl -lssl -lcrypto
-lsocket -lnsl -ldl -lz

Is the configure script silently malfunctioning for anyone else?
