My objection for the renaming is due to that it is requested in order
to circumvent limitations that existing build procedure has in
libcurl's port for a given platform.

My feeling is that, if it is possible, the build procedure should be
'fixed' in order to not impose limitations on the project. If,
technically speaking, the port build procedure can not be fixed then
it would be more palatable to enforce this limitation, for ever, on
the project as a whole.
