No, the assumption is that you already have a copy of libcurl on your 
system. The configure script right now assumes that the header files are 
in the system default include directories and that the library is found 
in the default library directories. If that's not correct, you can 
adjust the INCCURL and LIBCURL settings, just as it's already done for 
FreeBSD. You could add a few lines to the configure script which 
searches in several directories or add a --with-curl-dir command line
