Just because a GPL library was included doesn't make SSH GPL too ... it just means the SSH licence must be GPL-compatible (which is true of BSD).
So It's quite likely the SSH code was BSD, the library was GPL, and hence the combination was GPL.
In which case, there was no need to "rewrite all the GPL'd SSH code" because there wasn't any GPL'd SSH code to rewrite! :-)
