True and I tried something similiar to this. I created a /appl/curl
directory and used --prefix to throw the results in there.
This new version still does not work though and I still received
the same error when running my program. I read the SuSE 8.2
Administration manual and they said that the ipv6 module is not loaded
into the kernel at boot time. In the manual it says that I have to
explicitly enter
in the command "modprobe ipv6", so I don't think ipv6 is the
problem here. I compiled the curl tarball using gcc 3.3 and
glibc 2.3.26. Perhaps there is a issue with glibc.

Any more thoughts?
