Doing TCP/IP and similar stuff without an OS, not even a small and lean one,
is really something I'd advice against in general. But that's not really
on-topic for this mailing list...

libcurl needs a few POSIX-like functions and a good old BSD-style socket API.
I don't think anyone ever made a list or documented this, but the source code
is there for anyone to have a look or just try it.
