You need to read GIT-INFO if you get and build directly off git.

Clearly the lib/Makefile.b32 file is not up-to-date. Apparently not very many
people build curl with Borland so you may need to polish the build files a
little before things work as intended.

Does it help if you just make OBJDIR be . or optionally create subdir called
"BCC_objs" before you build?

That's not expected to work. A) We don't build in that directory and B) you
don't provide the necessary include paths.
