Of course it can, though apparently not 7.15.3. In fact you can just
select curl in the setup.exe and use the prepackaged binaries (which are
currently maintained by me.)

7.15.3 has a problem in that it tries to include both winsock2.h and
sys/socket.h. This is bad, as it causes tons of stuff to be redefined.
It is not Cygwin's fault, it was some change in curl. I'll see about
posting a patch.
