Thanks for your help, I got it working.
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/ssh2 --with-libssl-prefix=/usr/local/ssl
and then I went through and removed -DLIBSSH2_WIN32 from all the makefiles.
So, evidently that was the problem. It looks like the default configure
script for cygwin setups should not include that flag. I don't know
anything about autoconf tools myself, so sorry I can't submit the fix for
that myself. As far as I can tell, its all working fine now.
