Libcurl Install and Use Issues

Gentlemen,

Great job with curl! Unfortunately I have been unable to
enjoy it's benefits. First, I'm confused as to what is the
source code for libcurl ONLY?

I have been unable to install the libcurl source code (or
at lest what I believe to be the libcurl source) properly
in mingw (actually I'm using Dev C++ 4.9.9.1 & Win 98se) as
a library resource to be used with personal source code.

The installation document says I need to run a file named
MINGW32.BAT. But where on earth is this file.

Well never mind if it doesn't exist please provide manual
install instructions for Dev C or mingw or both. So far I
have installed *.h & *.c in the mingw include folder in its
own libcurl folder. And no I did not forget to associate
the libcurl folder to the C, C++ And project
include/libcurl directories. However I did get a barrage of
errors when using your many examples including simple.c,
getinmemory.c, httpput.c, multi-post.c, multithread.c, etc.
With Projects I included every *.h & */c included in the
curl-7.14.0.zip file for compiling in addition to the
sample code with other compilation errors resulting. I am
not using the ssl feature to keep it simple thus far. The
errors I got during single file compilation were almost
identical for all of them with the exception of pthread
when it was not used and called for:

  [Linker error] undefined reference to `curl_easy_init'
  [Linker error] undefined reference to `curl_easy_setopt'
  [Linker error] undefined reference to `curl_easy_perform'

  [Linker error] undefined reference to `curl_easy_cleanup'

  [Linker error] undefined reference to
`_imp__pthread_create'
  [Linker error] undefined reference to
`_imp__pthread_join'

The samp;e Source code (multithread.c) being used follows:

                             urls[i]);

    /* now wait for all threads to terminate */
    for(i=0; i< 4; i++) {
      error = pthread_join(tid[i], NULL);
      fprintf(stderr, "Thread %d terminated\n", i);
    }
  
    return 0;
  }
  
I've spent way too much time on this trivial install issue.
I need some directions to steer me. I'd appreciate any
help.

Thanks
