Yes, David, with libcurl as well. I used the ready-to-run libcurl mingw 
library described on my page. The resulting gpgkeys_curl.exe depends on 
libcurl.dll, so I think it is actually using it...

I seems so, but be careful. When I say "it build fine" I mean exactly this 
and not more than this: the exe files are produced by GCC without errors. I 
have not yet tested them extensively.

Beside doing a "make check" (25 passed over 25), I have only tested GnuPG 
1.4.1 with one day of regular use without finding any problem. However, there 
are many features I had not tested yet *including* keyserver support, i.e. 
*including* curl.

So, I cannot be sure that the gpgkeys_curl.exe I have compiled is actually 
working right. I saw your post on gpg-devel about testing curl code and I 
hope to have time to make some tests in the week-end...
