So try it before installing it.

Here's the process I use for updating remote systems where I have to
build openssh from source:

# ./configure && make
# ./sshd -t
# ./sshd -p 2022
# ./ssh -p 2022 localhost
[test login is OK]
# make install
# /etc/[whatever]/sshd restart
# ssh localhost
[test login again]
