First off, this is the OpenSSH mailing list, so there may be a better
forum (the Cygwin list or possibly the OpenSSL list) to ask.

Your OpenSSL config output looks fine.

This is because GNU make has not been installed in your Cygwin

Then I suggest that you simply install the OpenSSH that is included
in the Cygwin distribution.

I believe all you need to do is run the Cygwin installer and add the
openssh package. If you run into trouble I think the best place to
ask is the Cygwin mailing lists.
