Would you all mind adding the following to your Windows makefiles?

LFLAGS = /debug /release

Basically those additional flags will prepare the new libcurl builds for generating a PDB symbol file which can be added to a symbol store which can then be used for debugging should there be a problem.

There's absolutely no reason at all. If we just clean things up and get this
improved foundation I'd REALLY like to see libssh2 added to the build setup in
a similar fashion like the rest!
