I did a quick GNU makefile that suited my needs. You're welcome to
try it (attached). I've only the MSVC built version of Python. Hence pycurl.pyd
must (?) be build with MSVC too.

Put it in pycurl's src-dir, edit the 'CURL_ROOT' and do a
  mingw32-make -f Makefile.MSVC depend (optional since it needs gcc)
  mingw32-make -f Makefile.MSVC all install

(or use Msys's make). I've added a resource and manifest to pycurl.pyd.
Hint, hint Oleg.
