^FileDirectory on: 'c:\Danil\Deploy\Upload\tmp'
that needs to change so that it's platform agnostic.

If you are going to run newer version of curl on os-x then we'll need
to statically link in the newer library.

Nah, os-x is unix, calloc/malloc is fine, NewPtr is 1984 technology...
I'll note I think 11 tests ran, the only one that failed was to do
with that CURLINFO_FTP_ENTRY_PATH issue, and of course the ftp tests
since I'm too tire to alter ftpLocalWorkDir tonight.
If you've only 11 tests, then I'd suggest others could add a few more
tests, that is the easy lifting of the project.
