The real problem in my opinion is the presence of three -dev packages
for libcurl. Why the hell are headers different when the lib is built
against GnuTLS, OpenSSL or NSS ?
And why the hell can't a distribution packagers team decide on which
build to use ?
And if it has to be that three different incompatible builds of libcurl
can co-exist, then why aren't their prefixes different so that the
concurrent installation of their -dev counterparts is possible ?
That gdata / mailmbox problem is just a symptom, not a root cause.
