Thanks for the patch. I have these comments on your (generally fine) work:

1 - I don't want those ifdefs in the src-part. I think the curl tool should be
    identical no matter what the libcurl is made to support. The app already
    checks the curl_version_info() reply to see if the library supports stuff
    such as GSS, NTLM and krb4. I think the check for HTTP-support should be
    made in a similar run-time manner, not build-time.

2 - in lib/transfer.c you still include the header checks for
    Content-Encoding, Last-Modified and Location when HTTP is disabled. Is
    that on purpose or just an oversight?

Ah, thanks for this. I've now patched the generation of the file and it should
hopefully do right in tomorrow's snapshot!
