Please upload new version of curl (7.10.2-1)

No, but thanks for checking. The source maintainer upgraded his versions of autotools, and since then I haven't been able to cleanly build without rebuilding the's first. I don't have the knowledge or expertise needed to actually find the specific problem, so I just rebuilt all of them.

I am running the latest versions of gcc and autotools as distributed with cygwin.

If this is excessively large, I could attempt just rebuilding the specific one-or-two's that are affected. Do you want me to do that? Or, since this is just the source package, could we leave it as is for now, and revisit when the next curl upgrade is released?

If anyone wants a crack at the autotools issue, try building the "official" source package, as downloadable from After running a configure followed by a make, and get an error during building in the ./lib sub-directory about WinMain@12 something-or-another.

Do you have a packaging error, perhaps? The old source file is 680K, the
new one is 1.1M.  Looking into them, there's an interesting difference:

$ tar tvIf curl-7.10.1-1-src.tar.bz2 
-rw-r--r-- kproth/None    5664 2002-10-11 15:03:00 curl-7.10.1-1/CYGWIN-PATCHES/curl-7.10.1-1.patch

$ tar tvIf curl-7.10.2-1-src.tar.bz2
-rw-r--r-- kproth/None 1686363 2002-11-19 12:14:14 curl-7.10.2-1/CYGWIN-PATCHES/curl-7.10.2-1.patch
