Yep sure!

Forget for a while that VS2005 has an IDE and drop to the command line.

Download and
uncompress it somewhere.

Open a command prompt window and do the following from it:

Find vsvars32.bat in vs2005 and run it.
Change to where you uncompressed
Edit line 24 in makefile and change "VC=vc6" into "VC=vc8", save and close it.
run 'nmake vc'

That should build the library and curl for you under a known configuration.

Afterwards you can study src/Makefile.vc8 and easily adapt it to build
your program.
