I'm not sure what fun tricks cygwin and libtool play on you, but I personally
tend to build curl staticially to ease debugging:

$ ./configure --disable-shared --enable-debug --enable-maintainer-mode [...]

Then 'src/curl' is built with a static libcurl and there's no funny gdb
problems or anything. But then all my (lib)curl development is done on
