Summary0005106: Upgrading the IRCd normally leads to an error related to libcurl
DescriptionWhen upgrading UnrealIRCd normally, using ./Config, if you have chosen to enable remote includes in the last installation before upgrading, it will fail the upgrade with the following error:

checking /home/unrealircd/unrealircd-4.0.18-rc1/extras/curl/bin/curl-config... yes
checking curl_easy_init() in -L/home/unrealircd/unrealircd/lib -lcurl... no
configure: error: in `/home/unrealircd/unrealircd-4.0.18-rc2':
configure: error: You asked for libcURL (remote includes) support, but it can't be found at /home/unrealircd/unrealircd-4.0.18-rc1/extras/curl
Steps To Reproduce1) Download the latest version available of UnrealIRCd, untar it and enter into the uncompressed folder

2) Type ./Config and hit enter in all the questions

3) UnrealIRCd will fail the upgrade with the error stated in the description (assuming that you have enabled remote includes in the other installation, otherwise it will upgrade without any errors)

I see, I have an idea what causes this... will take a look later.

    When importing ./Config settings from a previous UnrealIRCd, with
    curl enabled but without system curl, the build could fail with
    an libCURL configure error. This is is because it imported the
    CURLDIR but it referred to an old UnrealIRCd directory.
