curl-config needed for a project

Asked by Joe Areeda on 2010-12-16

I am trying to join a new open source project (http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/SoftwareDevelopment)

The configure script is looking for curl-config (http://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/using/curl-config.html) which evidently reports the build options used to create libcurl.

I've used the software center to download all packages that I THINK are applicable without success.

Am I missing something obvious, or should I build curl from sources?

Thanks,
Joe

to locate files inside the package database you can use apt-file

sudo aptitiude install apt-file
sudo apt-file update

apt-file find curl-config

this outputs:
libcurl4-openssl-dev:

thank you.

And thank you for the general solution to my problem. Give a man a fish vs teach a man to fish.
