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
(http://www.libssh2.org)... except it doesn't support GSSAPI auth.
