this is indeed a needed step to build Jansson before Suricata, 
made the same while an experimental try with EVEbox 
--> https://forum.ipfire.org/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=22693#p124673
but there was also the need to include the jansson libs in the LFS too.

Have looked in version 'v2.23-core131-215-gc899be2fd' where Stefans 
patch is already included but if i change to chroot and execute a

suricata --build-info | grep jansson

i get

  libjansson support:                      no

so yes, i think the library isn´t linked even Jansson has been build
before Suricata.

Possibly Suricata do not searches automatically for libjansson ?
