I'm always willing to test. However, I don't think freshclam and
clamsubmit need newer libcurl versions, so I guess - if changes are
need - that only clamonacc needs to be reviewed (for the linking
part).

With friendly regards,
Franky

Perhaps there is something we can do to make it easier to statically
link libcurl, specifically, with freshclam, clamsubmit, and clamonacc.

Regards,
Micah

    I'd like to disagree here: it is a new implementation for an
existing feature (on-access scanning).
    There was already a remark in a redhat bugzilla request to
disable on-access for the epel-build for 0.102 (on which I commented,
since that would impact a lot of users).
    I won't go into the discussion of supporting "old" libraries
on "old OS's" again, but for enterprise users (RHEL 6/7, Centos,
Ubuntu LTS, ...) this is a bit of a problem (since the libcurl lib is
also provided by the OS vendor itself).
