Not much, there was the timeGetTime function in libwinmm, but that
test failed because of a stupid error on my part, I have attached a
patch to make it work.
Apart from this and nroff, the only problem is that openssl is not
detected unless I use the 'with-ssl' option, even though it is
in the default '/usr/local/ssl', but that's not important.

The problem is that 'make install' fails because it can't find 'curl.exe', I
know nothing about libtool, so I don't understand what happens, the
output during the making is:
/bin/sh ../libtool --mode=link gcc -g -O2 -L/usr/local/lib -o curl.exe
main.o hugehelp.o urlglob.o writeout.o writeenv.o getpass.o homedir.o
strtoofft.o ../lib/libcurl.la -lwinmm -lws2_32 -lz
gcc -g -O2 -o .libs/curl.exe main.o hugehelp.o urlglob.o writeout.o writeenv.o
getpass.o homedir.o strtoofft.o -L/usr/local/lib ../lib/.libs/libcurl.dll.a
-lwinmm -lws2_32 -lz -Wl,--rpath -Wl,/usr/local/lib
But despite all those '-o curl.exe' it the wrapper script is called 'curl'.
