Not yet - but I will do when I get 5 minutes ;-)

No problem - I wasn't sure how GitHub manages access to forks.

I had some additional thoughts about this overnight and I've gone with WinSSPI.

Yep - When I perform an OpenSSL based curl build I don't have to define USE_SSL as well.

Looking at setup.h USE_SSL gets defined at line 583 if USE_SSLEAY or any of the other SSL libraries are defined. As such I think || defined(USE_SCHANNEL) should be added to that list ;-)
