On 2016-11-24, I said:

I am the build-master for the Exiv2 project. http://exiv2.org <http://exiv2.org/>

I never mix GCC and Microsoft Compiled Code.    Additionally, I never mix code compiled with different versions of MSVC because I believe the compiler generates run-time and other library references that may cause issues.  I believe name mangling is not part of the C++ language standard and so C++ code cannot be linked, although this might not apply as I believe libssh is pure “C”.

To make life even more difficult, I encourage you to avoid CMake/Visual Studio as they dance with the elegance of two sumo wrestlers.

I provide build support for Exiv2 on several popular build systems.  Our current MSVC build environment builds libssh (0.55) with openssl (1.0.1j).  We also provide build support for CMake/Visual Studio.

     2012-05-04  23:35     <DIR>    libssh    <--- "vanilla" libssh  0.5.5  source tree

You may find our build code helps you to build libssh with MSVC.  Our build environments support VS 2005/8/10/12/13/15 and 2017/RC.  We also support GCC (and/or clang) on MinGW, Cygwin, Linux and MacOS-X.
