Hi Puneet,

You can enable/disable the ares support by giving options to the configure
You can use the following options with configure:
--enable-ares=<path if ares installation>

You can run a configure --help to see the list of other supported options.

I don't think that libcurl comes with ares, you would have to download and
install it separately.
