Full output

I have curl, curl-config and curl-devel installed. I have tried all suggestions I found on similar problems, but I can't get this to work. Any ideas appreciated.

Okay, this is how I got it to work: The error was related to CURL_STRICTER, it was missing in a line of MAKEFILE.pl. I found this bug and this patch, so I downloaded the WWW-Curl-4.17.tar.gz and extracted it, and changed the following line according to the patch:

if($e =~ /(OBSOLETE|^CURL_EXTERN|_LAST\z|_LASTENTRY\z)/) {

to look like

if($e =~ /(OBSOLETE|^CURL_EXTERN|^CURL_STRICTER\z|_LAST\z|_LASTENTRY\z)/) {

After that I installed it according to the included README and it worked.
