the download site for libssh currently has issues. So, maybe you
fetched something different from the expected libssh-0.5.4.tar.gz with
sha1sum of 4a372378db8fffaf28d5c79d80b2235843aa587c. I contacted the
webmaster just now.

At least one of our developers is also using 14.04 and has no
considerable issues.

In this case you should take the message literally: The port expects
you have installed the autoconf2.64 package of Ubuntu.

  aptitude install autoconf2.64

should do the trick.
