The recommended way for such systems is generally to use your "ordinary"
update commands, since you may have other things in your system that depends
on the particular version you have installed.

Another approach is to install the updated version in another path to allow
you to either version at will.

Then I guess the 'make install' did wrong, or your original curl is not in
/usr/bin or similar.

This is a proof you are subscribed as otherwise your mail woulnd't have been
