Just for eliminating any potential ambiguity, the file I modified is curl-7.17.0/src/Makefile. And the error occured with : gcc -g -g -W -Wall -Wwrite-strings -pedantic -Wpointer-arith -Wnested-externs -Winline -Wmissing-prototypes -Wmissing-declarations -Wundef -Wno-long-long -Wsign-compare -Wfloat-equal -Wno-format-nonliteral -Wendif-labels -Wstrict-prototypes -Wdeclaration-after-statement -isystem /home/eric/openssl-0.9.7m/include/openssl -isystem /home/eric/openssl-0.9.7m/include -o curl main.o hugehelp.o urlglob.o writeout.o writeenv.o getpass.o homedir.o curlutil.o strtoofft.o strdup.o -L/home/eric/openssl-0.9.7m/lib ../lib/.libs/libcurl.a -lssl -lcrypto -lz > > > /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 'curl.h' > > '/home/eric/curl-7.17.0/include/curl/curl.h' > > /usr/bin/install: `curl.h' et `/home/eric/curl-7.17.0/include/curl/curl.h' > > identifient le m?me fichier. > > > but it does not seem harmful. > > For us who're not overly good at French, what does it mean and why does it > happen?

You are right, I installed curl in the same directory than I unpacked it.

The connection where the problem occurs indeed includes router, firewall and NAT equipment. Does this mean that, for this problem, there is no bug or any possible fix in curl and that it is only due to the network equipment ? A workaround would then be to chunk a file in smaller pieces, which, hopefully, I can do.
