At line 1401 in lib/telnet.c:

  event_handle = (WSAEVENT)create_event_func();

I get this warning when compiling with clang-cl ver 6:

telnet.c(1401,28):  warning: cast from function call of type 'int' to non-matching 
type 'HANDLE' (aka 'void *') [-Wbad-function-cast]
  event_handle = (WSAEVENT)create_event_func();
                           ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

clang-cl is quite correct; a WSAEVENT is always 32-bit and HANDLE is a void* which could be 64-bit wide.

A fix is maybe to use another typedef for the WSACreateEvent() function. Like:

  typedef WSAEVENT (WINAPI *WSOCK2_EVENT)(void);
  ...
  WSOCK2_EVENT create_event_func;
  ...
  create_event_func = (WSOCK2_EVENT) GetProcAddress(wsock2, "WSACreateEvent");

FYI, there is also this similar warning:

curl_threads.c(111,22):  warning: cast from function call of type 
'uintptr_t' (aka 'unsigned int') to non-matching type 'HANDLE' (aka 'void *') [-Wbad-function-cast]
  t = (curl_thread_t)_beginthreadex(NULL, 0, func, arg, 0, NULL);
                     ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Can you suggest full patches too, since you have the compiler there to verify that the warnings actually go away... ?
