well, I really dont care about the name; it was only a suggestion to name it curljni because that describes exactly what it is: curl java native interface.

I did overcome my lazyness, and checked on my old SuSE 7.0 box where I have Sun Java installed;
and did some more makefile fixes there, inserted some hacks to error out if we dont have a JAVA_HOME var, and added the 'lib' prefix to the .so.
Also removed again the `pwd` hack you inserted in the test class call;
first it didnt work for me - so if you really need it then lets use $(shell pwd) instead;
second I tested with ./ again, and that worked fine for me ...
And hacked in a -k / --insecure switch into because I didnt like to be insecure by default.

> Does this means you want me to provide a binary distro for Linux ???
No, I think that's not needed at this point. Let's wait till we have released libcurl 7.18.0, after that we update the package again for that release; till then we can hack a bit around, and improve it...
f.e. what you wrote today in 'RE: libCurl with Java' would probably be nice to have in the README.
but I dont that we should provide Linux bins at all, or? Given that libcurl and Java is properly installed on Linux its just a
make -f Makefile.unix test
to create it from source - even without configure magic...,
and if that really fails there's still a chance that configure does better.

I've just uploaded a new tar.gz to my site which contains all recent changes:

I did not touch teh configure stuff - leave that to you.
