So it's time to learn something new:

$ sudo apt-get install debuild
$ apt-get source openssh
$ cd openssh-X.X
$ joe/vi/emacs/nano/pico debian/rules

scroll to the part of the script with the options passed to ./configure. 
Add the options you need.

$ sudo apt-get build-dep openssh
$ debuild -us -uc -b

And you'll have .deb packages ready to install.
You might want to edit debian/changelog by adding a new entry with a new 
version name, so that it won't conflict with Debian's original packages. 
Be careful with the formatting, it's quite picky!

Since you're activating an option, you might need development packages to 
this library that are not in the standard set of libraries required by 
the original Debian package: you can edit debian/control and edit the 
build-depends section to include these packages.

The Debian documentation can help you a lot.
