thanks, i've started to use the libcurl which comes with cygwin and my
libpurple plugin compiles under windows/cygwin/mingw.

problem is, when i include curl and call its init and cleanup
functions in the plugin code, the plugin no longer shows up in
pidgin's plugin list to load! the plugin works again when i comment
out the curl code... im statically linking curl and my plugin dll size
goes up from about 100k to 500k.

any ideas as to why this is happening and how to get it to work?
