Well I finally got it. Thanks.

-I wanted to try the openssl static library and build a static libssh2
just as a build system test for those who asked, but accidentally lost that
version in the process.

-I ultimately I had to put both openssl and visual studio in "time out"
again. (much insanity omitted)

-libgcrypt (which actually ends up being libgcrypt and its dependency
libgpg-error) cross compiles as expected THE FIRST TIME.

-once I switched to libgcrypt libssh2 builds just fine.

-I applied the same agent.c patch to libssh2_agent_userauth() discussed in
this thread below, and the putty agent works as expected!

Good stuff! Thanks!

-In the few days, I'll try the win64 cross build out.
