@cindex compiling libgnurl
GNUnet and some of its function depend on a limited subset of cURL/libcurl.
Rather than trying to enforce a certain configuration on the world, we
-opted to maintain a microfork of it that ensures we can link against the
-right set of features. We called this specialized set of libcurl
-``libgnurl''. It is fully ABI compatible with libcurl and currently used
-by GNUnet and some of its dependencies.

We download libgnurl and its digital signature from the GNU fileserver,
assuming @env{TMPDIR} exists.

Note: TMPDIR might be @file{/tmp}, @env{TMPDIR}, @env{TMP} or any other
location. For consistency we assume @env{TMPDIR} points to @file{/tmp}
for the remainder of this section.
