 From /usr/src/openssh*/contrib/README: is a Unix and Windows
   ProxyCommand which allows OpenSSH to make connections through a SOCKS5
   or http proxy which supports the CONNECT method (eg. Squid).

Works fone for me.  Compiles OOTB on Cygwin, I put it in 
/usr/local/bin/proxyconnect, and added the following lines to /etc/ssh_config:

   Host machine_that_needs_socks another_such_machine
           ProxyCommand proxyconnect -R local -S socks.server.domain.tld %h %p

     I always wondered about the meaning of life.   So I looked it
     up in the dictionary under "L" and there it was - the meaning
     of life.  It was not what I expected.                  - Dogbert
