Any monks ever build openssh (the whole enchilada) using Strawberry Perl's provided mingw gcc compiler? Is it possible?
No, it is not possible
strawberryperl doesn't provide sh.exe (msys), so you can't run ./configure , the standard installation dance
Shortest distance to compilation is to install msys from citrusperl, fixup ..\msys\etc\fstab ..\msys\etc\profile as documented (there is no installer that does it yet),
then startup msys.bat, cd to openssh directory, and follow standard autotools dance ( sh ./configure ... make install dance )
