Does it build .dll libraries, say libcurl.dll?
And do the executables linked against it work along with this dll?
Well then it is o.k. to use the shared version.

'ruby' doesn't build a shared libruby.dll by default (on cygwin), 
but it is better because easier to get additional modules loaded
as it is in perl, too.  Else the main executable always needs 
to be recompiled if a new module is added.  So not always is the
'default' the best option (IMHO).

Another question: Now, since we have libcurl, do you know of other
packages that make use of libcurl?  Have you tried to build one?
