libssh is a completely different library from libssh2, so that's not
going to work.

libssh2 has been deprecated in RHEL 8.1 in favor of libssh - libssh2
_may_ get added to EPEL, but it has not so far.  Dell should probably
look at either updating their code to use the alternate, or they could
include libssh2 in their RHEL 8 repo.
