By the way, "git bisect run <cmd>..." is very useful for automatically
tracking down bad commits like this if you can automate the "is this
commit bad" check. So you spend a few minutes up front writing a
script that can try to compile a given version of libcurl and exit
with 0 for "good" and 1 for "bad". Then tell git bisect the first
known bad revision (e.g. 10977f57) and the last known good revision
(e.g. curl-7_20_0) and let "git bisect run" do the rest.

This assumes you can run git on the platform you're trying to compile
on, but I suspect you are cross-compiling on Windows, so maybe it's

Anyway, just thought I'd mention it in case you hadn't thought of it.
