those dlls:
libeay32.dll libssl32.dll ssleay32.dll

I don't think so. IIRC, when I used D+curl I needed to download 
them manutally. This is always the case with Qt. Even using 
windeployqt with   --webkit2 flag I still need to copy those dlls 
to application binary folder.

It isn't always the case if the dll is dynamic loaded, it might 
fail quietly, for example, if you deploy an Qt application with 
QWebKit missing those Open SSL dlls, an page with https protocol 
just doesn't open and didn't show any error at all. To find out 
whether some referenced dll by your executable is missing, people 
use Dependence Walker:
