Allow me to quote the FAQ:

 5.1. Is libcurl thread-safe?


  We have written the libcurl code specificly adjusted for multi-threaded
  programs. libcurl will use thread-safe functions instead of non-safe ones
  if your system has such.

  We would appriciate some kind of report or README file from those who have
  used libcurl in a threaded environment.

So, the question is, do the windows functions like gethostbyname() work
