It sounds like you downloaded the cygwin version and the source
( and what you want is a mingw build. There's one or two
of those on the download page. Try:

Unzip that somewhere, then make sure the include directory you are using
is that include directory, and remove any of the others you added for
curl. Do the same thing with lib.
