Thanks Kamil for pointing out your use case.

Yes, I'll make it do something like that. There aren't many things
which can go wrong in libssh2, really only crypto and zlib.

After my patch-to-come --with-libz with no zlib found will also cause
configure to fail.

I will only make this change for crypto and zlib errors - everything
else (like is sed and libtool found) I will leave as-is, meaning that
those will work however they work in the autoconf macros.
