Add vcpkg installation instructions #4435
Curl is available as a port in vcpkg, a C++ library manager that simplifies installation for curl and other project dependencies. Documenting the install process here will help users get started by providing a single set of commands to build curl, ready to be included in their projects.
We also test whether our library ports build in various configurations (dynamic, static) on various platforms (OSX, Linux, Windows: x86, x64, UWP, ARM) to keep a wide coverage for users.
I'm a maintainer for vcpkg, and here is what the port script looks like. We try to keep the library maintained as close as possible to the original library.
Wonderful! Thanks @bagder. We prioritize updating curl whenever a new release is created or a bug in our port is found as it's such an important tool + library. If we spot any difficult technical problems or find fixes in the future we'll make sure to relay them upstream!
