it looks like there is some problem with your system's curl library.

we managed to link against it but linking executables then
fails with undefined symbols that should be found in

what is the value of CURL_LIBS in - maybe your system
curl is in some non-standard directory and needs an extra -L to be found?

you can probably use --without-system-curl to work around the problem.
