Sorry, I thought I'd explained in an earlier post.  I'm using libcurl v7.38.
So that I didn't need to update libcurl to v7.45 for clamonacc, I disabled it:

8<----------------------------------------------------------------------
$ curl -V
curl 7.38.0 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.38.0 OpenSSL[...snip,snip...]
8<----------------------------------------------------------------------
$ head -7 ~/src/net/mail/clamav-devel-dev-0.102/config.log
This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.

It was created by ClamAV configure 0.102.0-rc, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.69.  Invocation command line was

   $ ./configure --disable-clamonacc

Not to mention publishing 0.102 with changes from 0.102rc which break it.
