libcurl should return an error, and if the host isn't reachable by TCP, it
should most likely return before the timeout expires (unless you have a very
strict timeout).

No, I don't think that's the problem you experience.

7.16.2 is the latest public release for all platforms. But note that we don't
release/ship binaries in this project, we release source code and you have to
build it yourself or wait for or ask someone else to do it for you.
