From experience we know that at the very least libgnurl is not
available in some environments. You could substitute libgnurl
with libcurl, but we recommend to install libgnurl, as it gives
-you a predefined libcurl with the small set GNUnet requires. In
-the past namespaces of libcurl and libgnurl were shared, which
-caused problems when you wanted to integrate both of them in one
-Operating System. This has been resolved, and they can be installed
-side by side now.

+libgnurl has been developed to co-exist with libcurl installations,
+installing it will cause no filename or namespace collisions.
