There is the libghttp library that can handle http connections, but its
author recommends people look at the W3C's libwww (which also supports
ftp). I have been doing a bit of work getting libwww to play nicely, and
have come up with the glibwww wrapper.
It provides a thin layer around libwww that hides a lot of its complexity,
and also allows libwww to run inside the glib mainloop. The code is
currently only available under gnorpm/glibwww in CVS, as I have not tested
it too much.
Even if you don't want to use the wrapper to hide the libwww API, you
probably want the glibwww-callbacks.c file, which does the glib event loop
