You need the following software installed:

o automake 1.5 (or later)
o libtool 1.4 (or later)
o GNU m4 (required by autoconf)
o nroff + perl (if you don't have nroff and perl and you for some reason

4. Install version 1.4.1 of libtool - you find it in the "unstable" section
(read the manual to see how to get unstable versions)
5. Get cURL from the cvs
6. Build cURL with "./buildconf", "./configure", "make", "sudo make install"
