Why, port it? Doesn't openssh work for you?
Install openssh and read `/usr/doc/Cygwin/openssh-3.0.2p1-5.README´

Any special reason you want password authentication when cygwin's
openssh now supports RSA authentication?

If you want a *nix like solution then /bin/sh (or whatever shell is
specified is in /etc/passwd) is what you want, isn´t it?
Take a look at the archives there was some problems calling non-cygwin
