one or more of the curl headers is/are architecture-specific. meaning  
different from 32-bit to 64-bit. thus things that want to link against  
curl may break depending on which architecture of the headers are  
installed and in which architecture you're trying to compile. you  
could fix the headers to deal with this but you'd lose the work as  
soon as either curl (curl or curl-compat32) is updated, so there's no  
point - an unfortunate reality of multilib on slackware being a sort  
of add-on. instead ensure that whichever you have installed matches  
the architecture in which you're trying to compile. the easiest way to  
do that is to reinstall whichever (curl or curl-compat32) is
