Hi All
I am trying to figure out the options for using the following DNS mechanisms
with libcurl:

1. Build libcurl with c-ares support
2. Build libcurl without c-ares support so that my application uses a shared
ares library in the system.

I have gone through the libcurl documentation but couldn't figure out the
steps to enable/disable c-ares support.
Also can you specify if the default libcurl downloads have inbuilt c-ares or
