Yes, that's the system's cURL library! The configure script first
checks whether (/usr/bin/)curl-config exists, and then for some calls
in that library, curl_easy_setopt() and curl_free(). Your version
seems to be a bit old ("compatibility version 4.0.0, current version
4.0.0" is the recent message), but you can check for the two calls:
nm -pr /usr/lib/libcurl.2.dylib | egrep 'T _curl_(free|easy_setopt)'
It seems that these two calls have to exist in libcurl and also the
script curl-config (i.e.: which curl-config). If you miss them on
Panther, Fink or DarwinPorts might help with a modern libcurl. Or an
update to Tiger ... Mpm simply uses a fall-back: its own version. And
this might be a bit too much optimised for MS Windows where MiKTeX
Have you discussed your problem with the mpm developers? They have an
eMail address at least.
