Well, I'm no closer to understanding why it didn't work on my Win2k box at work. However, at home on my WinXP-pro box, it builds re-basable with no different in how I did it.

The only thing I can think of is that on my Win2k box, I don't usually log in as an administrator; on my WinXP box, I also don't, but I did while I ran this test...

I'll give it a try as an administrative account on Win2k and see if that makes any difference - if so I'll let you all know.

Of course, you can expect my next curl package update to be built on my WinXP box ;-) They're testing a new release now, so it should be within a couple weeks.
