I have two comments:
1. It's linking with openssl, and claiming to be LGPL, which
I understand to be incompatible.
2. I think the upstream either doesn't care or much understand
shared library versioning; it's a nascent shared library which
will undergo several revisions of ABI/API changes.
I would consider calling its SONAME 'libssh.so.0' to be
something prone to failure.

A F.A.Q. I assembled for shared libraries in Debian is available here,
it might help you as a starting point:
