Don't require a root if there is CAP_NET_BIND_SERVICE


I think openssh-client should allow use port forwarding not only for 
root user.
CAP_NET_BIND_SERVICE enought to use privileged ports.

I did patch for myself, but I think, that you could improve it and
to master.

This patch requires one more build dependency: libcap-dev.
