No, that's not supported yet. Patches to implement it would be
welcome of course. :)

But I also guess that agent forwarding isn't quite as useful in a
libssh2 app as in the OpenSSH client. libssh2 is maybe most useful
for making custom apps that use SSH, not so much a remote login
program that allows a user to do a second remote login from the
remote host.
