Subject: Create host key fingerprint like ssh-keygen does

Create host key fingerprint like ssh-keygen does

I'm using libssh2_hostkey_hash(session, LIBSSH2_HOSTKEY_HASH_SHA1) as in
the example code [1], creating a fingerprint string like "11:22:...".
However this is not the fingerprint I get displayed when connecting with
"ssh HOSTNAME" for the first time, or when running "ssh-keygen -lf
PUBLICKEYFILE" against the server's public key.

Is there any way in libssh2 I could calculate the fingerprint in the
same way as OpenSSH does?

Thank you,
