We're using Curl 7.30.0 in msysGit (and thus also Git for Windows), so
we should be able to include it. However, we do not have curl-config

Looking at 08900987 ("Decide whether to build http-push in the
Makefile"), that commit is from 2005, so it seems we've broken

Further, looking a bit at our curl build-script, we don't seem to to
install curl-config. HOWEVER, 37e42ab ("curl: update to 7.28.1 and
enable ipv6"), dated 1. Feb 2013 adds a function to remove
curl-config. Pat, why is this?

My knee-jerk suspicion would be that it's because it's a stale
curl-config from a previous install (that *did* install it). However,
it doesn't seem like the mingw32 Makefile (the one you get without
running configure, it seems) even tries to build curl-config. In fact,
it seems this is simply built by configure itself. Which we don't run,
again since 37e42ab ("curl: update to 7.28.1 and enable ipv6").

So it seems that 08900987 ("Decide whether to build http-push in the
Makefile") makes a bad assumption about the availability of
curl-config on new libcurl installations; it's not present on "stock"
Windows builds.
