Until this is fixed in Dropbox, here’s a quick fix / workaround. To get the Dropbox indicator to work in Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty Zapus (with Unity), you’ll need to launch Dropbox with “env XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=Unity”, like this:
env XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=Unity dropbox start -i
To get this to work automatically is a bit tricky because Dropbox overwrites any modifications to its autostart file.
To do all this from a terminal, you can use the following commands:
cp ~/.config/autostart/dropbox.desktop ~/.config/autostart/start_dropbox.desktop
sed -i 's/^Exec=.*/Exec=env XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=Unity dropbox start -i/' ~/.config/autostart/start_dropbox.desktop
dropbox autostart n
mkdir -p ~/.local/share/applications/
cp /usr/share/applications/dropbox.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/
sed -i 's/^Exec=.*/Exec=env XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=Unity dropbox start -i/' ~/.local/share/applications/dropbox.desktop

In Linux distributions that support snap packages (Ubuntu and many others), you can install rclone using the following command:
