First I wanted to avoid fiddling with makefiles, but I tried with makefile(using zlib & openssl), but failed, so I ended up with pre-compiled libraries, but,
alas, the program which needs libcurl (darcs) cannot find libcurl function
(actually, configure script cannot find it, similarly like curl's script :-(

Now I have to use wget instead of curl. Fortunately, Win98 is just my testing
platform for extended functionality testing, and on Linux everything works
without too many complications :-)
