okay, let's make sure I clarify.  When building with CYGWIN, I need to
build openssh with the openssl libraries in the "library path"?

I added "/cygdrive/f/TRUNK/UPDATES/Linux/FIP_SSL/openssl-0.9.8o/out32dll"
directory to $LIB, $LIBPATH, $LD_LIBRARY_PATH, and nothing works.
That is where a copy of opensslv.h is located.  I also found a copy in
/cygdrive/f/TRUNK/UPDATES/Linux/FIP_SSL/openssl-0.9.8o/include.  I
have tried to add that to $PATH, and to $LIB. I wouldn't mind it so
much, but it takes 15-20 minutes to build to the point where it fails.

Nothing seems to work.  I am sure it is possible to build OpenSSH with
OpenSSL-fips, but I am at a loss because of lack of good documentation
that is available.
