What was the reason for not including std.net.curl in the Windows phobos library?
What was the reason for not including 'std.net.curl' in the 
Windows phobos library? I've added it and recompiled phobos for 
use but i just wondered why it was missing?

For others i blogged how to recompile with curl support here:

IIRC it is licencing issues, they can't include curl in the distribution
without certain requirements that were deemed to awkward to implement.

No, it was a bug in AutoTester. Se discussion at pull 613:
https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/phobos/pull/613

CURL licence permits us from including CURL _binaries_ only so one have 
to download it manually from "Other Downloads" section of
http://dlang.org/download.html
