It works, I do it all the time.


  1 - you need to specify the "prefix" directory, not the full dir since it
      needs to find both the $prefix/lib and $prefix/include and the relevant
      files in there (and there is no $prefix/lib directory in a regular
      libssh2 dev tree, I have a lib -> src/.libs symlink for that).

  2 - you need to manually provide the extra libs you need for the dependencies
      to configure (or make)

AFAIK, it has worked the same way basically forever and I've linked it like
that regularly since the day we added ssh support.
