Compiling curl itself should be exactly as easy as compiling libcurl. You
might have even compiled it already without knowing!

I agree, it would be much easier for you if someone else did your testing
for you.

I don't agree--if you can show us that the problem is in libcurl, you'll
find a receptive audience of people willing to fix the problem. What
what we (the developers) HAVE said is that it works for us, and that
some of the things you were trying to do weren't working because they
were invalid. Since you haven't shown us your code, and you haven't
even tried the same operations with known working code (curl.exe),
we haven't yet been ruled out a problem in your program. That is by
far the most common source of problems that appear on this list and
therefore the most efficient place to start looking.

There could certainly be a problem with libssh2 or libcurl on mingw32, but
we won't know that for certain unless someone tries running curl.exe
on mingw32 to see.
