Yes, that's why 'make install' needs sudo, not the other make commands.

Wow, that's massive and I know far too little Mac OS X stuff to comment on all
that. But you're linking with -l and just adding the dir where the new libcurl
is installed with -L. Is that really preventing the linker from finding the
shared default libcurl version you already have installed? I would guess it
doesn't and that is what happens.
