Strange. Why did you get this problem and how come others have managed to
build libcurl without this change? Is it related to what VS or Windows version
you run?

(And yes, I know very little about windows building in general.)

Because you build from a source code checkout and not from a release tarball.
If you had read the file GIT-INFO which is in the root dir of a git checkout
