If you've followed this mailing list for any length of time you'd notice
that we don't really endorse the instructions from random other web
sites.  They are often out-of-date and contain needless instructions.
This web site is no exception.  The CYGWIN= suggestion is wrong.

Just use the instructions from /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/openssh.README

Btw, Corinna, this file suggests setting ntsec.  That likely should
just be deleted.
