Oh, I just overlooked the attachement, it did get through. The listing clearly 
shows that you have a curl version in /usr/local/ that I would recommend to 
uninstall (preferably using make uninstall in the source directory) as 
suggested in my previous emails, as it is the likely cause of the configure 
error you came to report.

The Ubuntu curl/libcurl etc packages (that you should keep) provide the 
headers in /usr/include.
