agreed, but that was already in the Makefile, I've only moved it to the top.

ok, will this evening take another look; also have successfully removed the ugly Makefile.b32.resp dependence...

correct, but it was default to build with OpenSSL; I will add a var and make it conditional as with the other Makefiles....

no idea - I've just taken what was on the oild makefile....

what I did was just a quick shot to get something workable for Greg, I've already looked at the BCC help file, and see that this all can be done better....

sure, agreed; but I wasnt sure if sys/utime.h is missing with all Borland distros....
so I did it this way to avoid changing too much files until I'm sure that the change is needed - and if so then this never worked with Borland...?? That was what I wondered....

the other problem I run into is the SIZEOF_CURL_OFF_T setting for Win32; maybe for Borland it has to be set to 4 ?
Borland seems to have no import lib _lseek64... (which is exported by msvcrt.dll)

no further time now to check the size with a testprog, perhaps later or tomorrow....
