Using vagrant, I brought this up on a few different boxes.

SHA256(openssh-SNAP-20170922.tar.gz)= c40ee9c2e03ef8e6e8558066e51cdb8ed19e3c2339f64a00a68159d938c302b0

"bento" as a prefix means that it's from Chef's "Bento" project and just
means "tuned by people who probably know what they're doing for VMs" and
is otherwise the base OS.

 * Bento Fedora 26: because system openssl is OpenSSL 1.1.0f

 * Bento Debian 9.1
 * Bento Centos 7
 * Bento FreeBSD 11
 * Debian Jessie
 * Debian Stretch
 * NetBSD 7
 * Ubuntu Trusty
 * Ubuntu Xenial

Test script as run within the VM is attached as
"openssh-snapshot-basetemplate", it chose the installs of dependencies
to take from "stock" to "ready to compile".

Result files, if anyone cares, at:
