Thanks, Thomas!

It helps a bit: after applying that patch (had to chance a few spaces to tabs), it gives a different error in build.log:

checking whether OpenSSL's PRNG is internally seeded... no
checking for PRNGD/EGD socket... not found
configure: error: OpenSSH has no source of random numbers. Please configure OpenSSL with an entropy source or re-run configure using one of 
the --with-prngd-port or --with-prngd-socket options

Any update on this? :/
Comment 10 Nuno 2020-02-03 18:06:10 UTC
the newer net-misc/openssh-8.1_p1-r1 is also affected

checking if openpty correctly handles controlling tty... yes
checking whether AI_NUMERICSERV is declared... yes
checking for getpgrp... yes
checking if getpgrp accepts zero args... yes
