Thanks again for all the responses. For now -- I am simply adding 
the DLL to the EXE and writing it out to the working directory.   
Not elegant - but it does work.

import std.stdio;
import std.file;

ubyte[] curlBytes = cast(ubyte[]) import("libcurl.dll");

void main(string[] args)
     std.file.write("libcurl.dll", curlBytes);

     // test curl
     auto content = get("");
