On a clean slackware 8.1 install, building 0.9.71 fails with:

make[3]: Entering directory `/l/src/alsaplayer-0.99.71/reader/curl'
/bin/sh ../../libtool --mode=compile gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I../..   -I/usr/local/include  -I/usr/include -Wall -D_REENTRANT -I../.. -I../../alsaplayer -c curl.c

curl.c:35: parse error before `CURLM'
curl.c:35: warning: no semicolon at end of struct or union
curl.c:40: parse error before `}'

(ld 20020526, gcc 2.95.3, gtk-config 1.2.10,
 curl-config libcurl 7.9.4)

Solutions are to move curl-config out of the way so that configure won't
find it, or install curl 7.9.8.  Both work well (I'm alsplayer-enabled

Maybe alsaplayer's configure script could run curl-config, rather than
checking for its existence, and complain if curl isn't recent enough?
