Until we get sn-devel upgraded, you need to be able to run and fully
test on the version in Ubuntu 14.04.  I would rather not have a version
switch, can you instead just load the file with fd_load()?

After that, it might be more possible, as libjansson 2.11 is available
in EPEL for RHEL6 and RHEL7.
