The only difference in configure (except some switched lines) in gcc 5.* 
for these side configures missing:
  -Wsign-compare -Wno-pointer-sign

Configure of ssh is the same (except the gcc version). Even the error 
message looks quite strange - everything is build with -fPIC. I don't 
think it was luck. Now the fail is quite deterministic.
