In general, you should do it the opposite way. Compile with the lowest 
library version, and it will work with an higher one. Going backwards is 
to be supported by the libraries internals.
Note however, that ssh doesn't cry when "going backwards" within the patch
series (just like going forward won't generate such notice).
