Paul, what Peter and Daniel has said so far should have answered all
your questions, but let me add some more things for clarity.

Libssh2 has not been ported to uClinux in the sense that libssh2
provides the integration glue to make it part of a normal uClinux build
environment (i.e., make menuconfig + dep + all). Doing so should be
relatively easy, and as you know I have posted recipes on this available
from for a bunch of projects already, and
it should be very easy to adapt for example the gnutls or gsasl recipes
(which depends on libgpg-error + libgcrypt, like libssh2 does) for
libssh2 as well.

Fortunately, libssh2 does not require anything more than what GNU SASL
or GnuTLS requires from Libgcrypt: SSH2 uses standard crypto algorithms
like MD5, SHA1, HMAC, AES, RSA and DSA.
