I've considered using PuTTY, but from the standpoint of an "SSH library" 
it doesn't seem like it would be any easier to use then OpenSSH.  In other 
words, neither OpenSSH nor PuTTY are designed to be used as an SSH 
library.  Which basically means I'd end up stripping out all kinds of code 
I don't need.  And since the patched version of PuTTY you reference 
doesn't include support for gssapi-keyex, that gives OpenSSH the 
upper-hand... at least between those two options.

I was really hoping for a library... something like libssh2 
( except it doesn't support GSSAPI auth.

This is the link referenced above on the PuTTY website.  Unfortunately it 
doesn't include support for GSSAPI Key Exchange.
