Re: Unable to build dll version of curl 7.36.0 on Windows

Building the dll version of curl 7.36.0 (MSVC 10), on Windows, fails when linking, with this error message:
tool_cb_rear.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol curlx_read referenced in function tool_read_cb

As I see it, BUILDING_WARNLESS_C should be defined in lib/warnless.h, not in lib/warnless.c. At least, with this modification, I can successfully build the dll. The affected file in the git repository is unchanged in this regard, so I assume this is not fixed.
