libcurl: use chunked Transfer-Encoding for HTTP_POST if size unknown #4138
If using the read callback for HTTP_POST, and POSTFIELDSIZE is not set, automatically add a Transfer-Encoding: chunked header, same as it is already done for HTTP_PUT, HTTP_POST_FORM and HTTP_POST_MIME. Update test 1514 according to the new behaviour.

libcurl 7.66.0 automatically adds a "Transfer-Encoding: chunked" header if the content length is not known to libcurl, because of this change: curl/curl#4138 libcurl does not parse custom "Content-Length" headers, it needs the content length using the options CURLOPT_POSTFIELDSIZE(_LARGE) and CURLOPT_INFILESIZE(_LARGE). The "Boulder" server rejects requests with both headers, but the host acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org accepts such requests, probably because there's a reverse proxy.
