Are we using curl with encryption? Sorry, I'm not up-to-date at the moment, but I came across this comment:

https://lintian.debian.org/tags/possible-gpl-code-linked-with-openssl.html

On Ubuntu, this means we have to use libcurl4-gnutls-dev and avoid libcurl4-openssl-dev.

I had not known about this. Compiling, linking and running with libcurl4-gnutls-dev works just as well as with libcurl4-openssl-dev so I replaced the package in #4541 now.

Wasn't there a question about libcurl a few weeks ago? I think there was suggested to prefer the openssl-type. Could there arise problems?

libcurl comes in several flavours under Ubuntu, the only difference seems to be which SSL implementation it uses (OpenSSL, GnuTLS etc). The only issue for us is that we're apparently not allowed to list the openssl version as a dependency for debian packaging because it conflicts with our license – but as we don't use SSL in Widelands with curl, it does not matter which one of the various curl libs is installed; any will do.
