libssh2-devel was not shipped with RHEL. The package is built inside a
module and the -devel is a 'build-only' tool which doesn't get out of
the build system.  This is mainly because the libssh2 is only in there
to make an app work which I think is being rewritten to use libssh but
didn't make it in time. [While libssh looks like it is the version you
would replace with libssh2.. it seems to be the opposite.]

So at the moment, the package isn't shipped.
