This is confusing. You reference Neon 0.24.2, link to 0.24.4 and earlier
0.24.5 is mentioned. It is very important to use 0.24.5. Because of the
security (CVE CAN-2004-0179) fix.

Again, unless there is a very specific reason to use 0.9.7c, openssl-0.9.7d
should be used because of security fix.

Will the version from gnuwin32.sourceforge.net work?

You may want to mention gnuwin32.sourceforge.net since that project is more
actively maintained than unxutils.
