is it so difficult ? I remembered that i compiled libcurl without difficulty
with MSYS/MinGW on Windows or with the mingw cross toolchain on Linux (3
months ago). I used a small shell script for that.

I have some questions:

1) Can you add a README_WIN32.txt file which specifies which compiler flags
you used for these builds ?

2) Would it be possible to have a file in* or in the tarball
which explains the naming convention of the tarballs. Like
or (library naming section)

3) Can you put the libcurl.pc file in lib/pkgconfig. That's where it should
be by default

4) Would it also be possible to add a version of libcurl built with c-ares ( ? We would like to use libcurl with c-ares, and this
would avoid me to build c-ares and libcurl myself.

thank you for your work !
