Ah, maybe I misunderstood your question.
Are you asking "Where do I find the existing copy?"
or are you asking "Where is the file I need to copy to /usr/bin?"

The make install would move it to the place you configured the
install to take place, as described in the section

	The /usr Versus /usr/local Debate

That's the question I thought you needed answering. If you want
to do something *before* the install, to run some tests with
a temporary overwrite, then it's somewhere in the build directory.
Perusing the directory structure should find it, easily, and if
not, then "find" is capable of searching the directories under the
build directory. I'm not familiar with the exact directory structure
used by the creators of scp, so I can't tell you exactly where to
go and look, and also the actual directory name is under your control,
anyway (though the structures under it would be set by the creators).

A little initiative on your part is required, I guess. You should
be able, with a little ingenuity, find a file which resides in
a subdirectory of a known directory.
