Curl and socks5

Hi All,

I was trying to use Curl with socks5 and am having slight problem.
The command line was something like this:

./curl --proxy socks5server

The socks server is responding everytime the following HTML:

  <title>Configuration Error</title>
  <h1>This machine is not an HTTP proxy</h1>
   Please check your proxy configuration settings. This machine
   is a SOCKS server, and your web client attempted to use it as
   as an HTTP proxy server.

Is there a trick to tell Curl that the server is socks and not
regular proxy?

Please do not respond with FAQ 2.4, since I saw announcement that there
is limited socks support in curl.
