Good day to you all. First of all, bidwatcher is one
great program. Thanks so much for the efforts put
forth to make it.

I've used it under Linux with very nice results.
However, I'm on a Win32 platform now and would like to
use it again. I've installed the latest version of
Cygwin and attempted to compile it. However, after
installing libcurl, I get this error during the
./configure stage:

<snip>
checking for the version of libcurl... 7.14.0
checking for libcurl >= version 7.11.1... yes
checking whether libcurl is usable... no
configure: error: Cannot find libcurl
<snip>

I attempted to correct the problem by looking at the
configure script, but I can't make heads or tails of
this line:

<snip>
if test "${libcurl_cv_lib_curl_usable+set}" = set; then
<snip>

The part I don't understand is the +set. Sorry for my
poor scripting and coding skills... or lack thereof.

If I can get this compiled, I'll send you all the
binary. Thanks in advance for the help!

- Ken

    You should check the file config.log to see what messages
    the configure script logged while checking for libcurl.
