Now this change is very curious to me. Isn't curl_off_t a full 64bit type for
you on mingw?

curlx_strtoofft was not changed in 7.32 => 7.35, what was changed is that I
made the HTTP chunked decoder to handle 64bit sized chunks so the code now
uses curlx_strtoofft() to parse the number to make it properly 64/32 bit

I'm puzzled why this causes a problem for you, as we use curlx_strtoofft() on
several other places in the code so if this is wrong...
