LIN6-7006 : openssh build fails because bsd/libutil.h does not exist

Component/s: Userspace


The compile phase of the build fails because it cannot find bsd/libutil.h.  This is not surprising because the file is not supposed to exist.


We should explicitly disable libutil using a configure option.  Even if libutil.h or bsd/libutil.h exist, we do not want to use them.

Steps to Reproduce

Unknown.  This may have happened only once.  I have confirmed in the failed build that configure for openssh did find bsd/libutil.h even though it does not exist.
