That page points to another that says that that authentication method is
deprecated in favour of OAuth. curl has some built-in support for OAuth2 but I
don't know if it's applicable to OAuth1 which appears to be all Flickr
supports. In any case, there's no problem in using OAuth over HTTP with curl
and there are plenty of resources describing how to do it. The tricky part is
not the curl part but rather the OAuth part.
