Another option maybe just run system wget to retrieve the package, it
may drop the curl dependence but add a wget dependence. In my perl
application, useing system and capture its output to figure out the
process information is trivia, but in C, maybe with libcurl is easier.
As a off-topic question, does each profile maintained by alfs
maintainer also has a wget script maintained up-to-date along with the
profile for download?
