No, I don't think so.  We are talking about data formats and protocols
and not about specific implementations.  The SSH format is documented
in the source code for version 1 and there are internet drafts for
version 2.

BTW, SSH has been developed outside of the U.S. and firthermore there
are currentlu no restrictions on the export of crypto software which
is freely available.
