in reply to openssh build with Strawberry Perl provided gcc

I'm not going to be much help on figuring how to build openssh with Strawberry Perl's tool set.

However, I did want to point out that Strawberry Perl does come with the libssh2 library and the Net::SSH2 module. I'm not sure what your intended goal is, but would it be possible to leverage the included libssh2 library for what you're trying to accomplish?

    I'm not sure what your intended goal is,

    :) obviously it is to install the latest libssh2 with all the latest bug/security fixes, like libssh2 1.4.3 from November 27th 2012 instead of libssh2-1.4.2

      Might regret this, but I'll go ahead in case I might learn something in the process.

      From the OP: Any monks ever build openssh (the whole enchilada)...

      From your post: obviously it is to install the latest libssh2...

      Aren't libssh2 and openssh two different things that can be used to accomplish similar tasks? Also, if a person has one of the two properly built/installed, would it be a reasonable assumption that he/she can use that for most SSH related tasks without "needing" the other?

      Not being very familiar with libssh2 and openssh, the biggest difference that jumps out at me is that libssh2 only supports SSH version 2 protocol and it looks like openssh supports SSH versions 1 & 2 protocols.

      In any case, unless you are nmork and didn't log in before responding, I don't think the OP gave us enough info to say for sure why he/she is trying to build openssh on Windows. Is it to see if they can get it to build and work? Are they needing SSH version 1 protocol support? Are they wanting/needing modules the use openssh (such as Net::OpenSSH)? Other reasons? Can't speak for anyone else, but my mind-reading skills are non-existent.

      Anyways, my intent was to point out a possible alternative that might work for the OP.
