Any difference between libcurl.dll and libcurl-4.dll

This is a newbie question. I am able to compile libcurl with SSH2 and
create the "libcurl.dll" on the Windows platform. Till today, I was
using the "libcurl-4.dll" found in the Win-XP binary distribution
available at the CURL web site.

Why these two "dlls" are having different names? Should I need to rename
my "libcurl.dll" to "libcurl-4.dll" before using it with my application
or can I use it as it is (without renaming it).
