I've installed erlang, icu and spidermonkey, but went to configure couchdb Fails (checking for curl >= 7.18.0... can't find curl >= 7.18.0). I updated curl (after instalation (7.21.5) I had to run 'export PATH=$HOME/bin:$PATH'), I realize process succeeded by runinng 'curl -V' but I'm still getting same result!

am i missing some parameter?

Try running ./configure --help. There should be an option called --with-curl=path/to/curl, but I could not find a list in their official docs.

It works! the option is: '--with-win32-curl=$HOME/include/curl' (win32? lol)

THANKS!

I saw that parameter in the docs but did not think it was it. :D Glad to hear it is working.

You need to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to include wherever your new curl libraries are, eg $HOME/lib and you need to set LD_INCLUDE_PATH to include wherever your new curl headers are, eg $HOME/include/curl (or something like that).

Hope that helps!

Just for completeness, there is also the environment variable:

export CURL_CONFIG=$HOME/bin/curl-config

Which the 'configure' script checks. This example would for if you installed curl with --prefix=$HOME, but any path is valid. See the couchdb installation community page for an example of this used.
