I don't see any file in .\packages\Win32 folder.
Is it part of distribution?

That makes it easier to figure out where to edit them.

Is this solution used in other projects?
Could this common file be used by any other targets right now? I don't
see any candidates.
It seems to be very little in common among various platforms supported
by curl. I can't see which two targets would share these settings.

I don't say I don't like this idea. That would make needed info more
visible for sure. I think that's in itself a good reason to do so.

Technically there's no problem doing this, of course.
