If you use the Gpg4win installer to build the library, the lib file will
be at:

  $ ls -l src/playground/install/pkgs/libksba-1.0.4/lib/
  -rw-r--r-- 1 wk wk 288340 2008-09-29 20:52 libksba.a
  -rwxr-xr-x 1 wk wk   5517 2008-09-29 20:52 libksba.def
  -rwxr-xr-x 1 wk wk  94340 2008-09-29 20:52 libksba.dll.a
  -rwxr-xr-x 1 wk wk   1050 2008-09-29 20:52

What you want is the libksba.dll.a file.  Rename it if you don't like
the suffix.

Please note that libksba is licensed under the GPL version 3 or later.
Thus your program needs to have compatible license terms if you intend
to distribute it.
