Yes, you should grab the msysGit (the Git for Windows build
environment) , tweak it to include the new OpenSSH binary, ensure it
builds and works OK and then send a pull request (or post your patchset
to the msysgit mailing list .
A sort of crash course on how to get started is .
The main page for the msysGit/Git for Windows development is .
Note that there should be no Cygwin involved, of course.
Git for Windows is built completely from the sources of all the
components it includes, using MinGW/MSYS so no component of Git for
Windows depends on the Cygwin runtime DLL.
