I took one of the source packages from humg and did this -

./configure --disable-ldap --disable-ldaps
cd lib
make build -e -f libcurl.framework.make
make install

Looks like this would work. I had trouble without disabling ldap. I had to
add an ldap lib to the libcurl.framework.make file. I don't need ldap in any
case, so I just disabled that. Will try to get someone to test a sample
application and let the mailing list about my findings.
