sorry for my first post - I got a completely different and more complete package these days;
I've now looked at the SF site, and totally agree that this is useless incomplete bull**** there!!
However that has nothing to do with how old it is (in fact what I have is around 6 years old!) but only how it is distributed = the Perl script is missing for updating the, and itself is also not in the JNI archive where it belongs to - otherwise you cant get the JNI compiled.

So I would like to provide to you what I got years ago, and how I did patch it...

I have now updated this package so that it looks like this:
and here's the diff so you can see what I changed:

I've now modified the Perl script so that it creates the in one go, and no further editing is needed anymore. Also I've added a make target to the Makefile (which is for MingW32) so that is automatically generated whenever the curl.h and/or curlver.h header is newer than
