ok now that i have libcurl built i would like to have a copy of it built
with ssl support also i have the latest binary from openssl's website
(ssleay32.lib and libeay32.lib) but when i build it and try to compile a
test app it gives me the following error:
Error: Unresolved external '_X509_NAME_get_entry' referenced from

am i maybe missing yet anouther library i should be linking into the app
maybe or do i need to build the openssl library myself and use it? thanks
in advance
