I removed my "custom definition" and added CURL_STATICLIB on tests/server projects when the whole set of projects is set to be around dynamic libcurl (=when CURL_STATICLIB isn't defined yet), and it worked! Thank you!
I added a comment in CMake script to explain why we define CURL_STATICLIB.

Of course, lib558/lib559 still don't compile when having HIDDEN_SYMBOLS to OFF, but this is another problem, as we discussed.

Good. Now I'm going to commit and have a look to other tasks.
Thanks again.
