Curl for 16-bit dos ?

I need to develop an embedded application which will run on 16-bit dos
(Caldera OpenDOS 7.01 to be exact).

It will have a 586 cpu, realtek 8139 based nic card, 4 to 8mb of ram,
and some sort of ms-dos tcp/ip stack (still haven't found which one, any
ideas/links?) and it should connect regularly over tcp/ip to an http web
server and do various http-post and http-get connections. It will then
do some post-processing and dial out thru a modem.

The system will have no hard disk, just an ISA board with some flash
memory mounted as the C: boot disk, in read-only mode (temporary files
will be written to a ram disk).

Question: where can I get any version of curl compiled for 16-bit dos
support ??

Anyone attempted an embedded setup like this?
