Description :
libssh2 is a library implementing the SSH2 protocol as defined by
Internet Drafts: SECSH-TRANS(22), SECSH-USERAUTH(25),

Update Information:

This update removes unwanted linker flags such as "-Wl,-z,relro" from the libssh2.pc file so that applications linking against libssh2 do not implicitly inherit those flags.
