Hi Peter:

I looked at the examples and they are quite good. Also,
I performed some experiments and concluded libssh2
is well suited to my application.

I suppose the size of the library can be reduced by
disabling libz compression. I noticed PIC in the
configuration options. What is it and is it important ?

Finally, any hints about how to minimize the library
size would be appreciated.

Best Regards,

Paul R.
