Shamelessly ripped from Micah's post the other week:

Unlike clamdscan, which has the network socket code written by hand,
clamonacc depends on libcurl for all of its network code to
communicate with clamd.

The specific feature that we used which bumps the libcurl version
requirement to 7.45.0 is "CURLINFO_ACTIVESOCKET".
 See https://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/c/CURLINFO_ACTIVESOCKET.html for details.
