krb5support missing in Makefile when configuring --with-krb5=<pathtokrb5> required by newer krb5 versions

I reported the missing -lkrb5support in the output of
krb5-config --libs
as a bug to krb5-bugs at

with this explanation:

The missing -lkrb5support shows up in trying to compile openssh-7.3p1 
which uses 'krb5-config --libs' in the configure script to get at the 
krb5 libraries. So it does not compile.

Darren, I will send you the full bug report with more information
about versions and flags.
