It means configure didn't find (a new enough) libssh2 and associated include
files to use. I see you run ubuntu so make sure you have the libssh2-1-dev
package installed.

When you have configure problems, load config.log into an editor and search
for the libraries/keywords that failed and you investigate that particular
test and why it failed. In this case search for "libssh2".
