gnurl 7.35.0 (stable, latest)

GNUnet recommends gnurl as a dependency, which is (conjectures apart) a rough fork of curl. This ebuild has an optional USE flag to enable DANE certificate validation with GNUTLS. Without gnurl the hostlist daemon will not be included in GNUnet although it appears to be a crucial component.

Note that this ebuild is equivalent to a parallel installation of curl so there are conflicts. Those have been resolved by tuning files in the source tree directly. This is a *very* ugly hack and IMHO the fork maintainer should apply the required changes, such as renaming *curl* into *gnurl* whenever appropriate.

Therefore man3 pages have been skipped — leaving only man1 — as well as the aclocal.m4 file and example files. The include/curl directory is renamed into include/gnurl and dependencies updated accordingly, both in the source tree and in the image install directory.

Although the ebuild is a thoroughly updated version of curl.ebuild, the KEYWORDS section has been limited to x86 architecture as there's no indication yet it compiles and runs properly on other architectures.

This ebuild has been successfully compiled on a Gentoo AMD64 architecture.
