Re: Problem linking statically libcurl

Thanks for your answer,

I didn't mention it but I already use -DCURL_STATICLIB in my CFLAGS,
wich allowed me to use libcurl without the DLL, but only this flag isn't
enough, I need to tell mingw to use every needed library statically, so
the problem persists.
