RE: How to Configure Curl to resolve hugefile build failure

But I would feel a whole lot more comfortable if I was able to get a clean configure and build. The object hugehelp.o does exist in the same directory as the other *.o files, so why is build unable to locate it?

You shouldn't need to do anything. That function is present in src/hugehelp.c that is compiled and linked with curl by default. Note that you don't at all need it for libcurl, only for the curl tool.

There's a configure --disable-manual too, but all that does is generate a tiny src/hugehelp.c file with an empty hugehelp() function.
