Is c-ares no longer reported by --version?

So, installing 7.36 from source on a new machine. I specify:

./configure --enable-ares

And in the messages I see:

checking whether to enable c-ares for DNS lookups... yes
checking that c-ares is good and recent enough... yes
 resolver: c-ares

But, when I run curl --version, I get:

curl 7.36.0 (x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.22.0 OpenSSL/1.0.1 zlib/ libidn/1.23 librtmp/2.3

On an older machine, it looks like:

curl 7.27.0 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.27.0 OpenSSL/1.0.0 zlib/1.2.3 c-ares/1.9.1 libidn/1.18 libssh2/1.4.2

Note how c-ares is missing? Any ideas? Is it not compiling in for some reason or is it just not being reported when checking version?
