Which Operating system you are trying to install this package?
If you want install this package you need to install dependencies also ..

apt-get curl


good luck.

i am using red-hat.  unfortunately, i do not have yum on my system.  i tried to install yum and had the following issues: http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Linux/Q_23500674.html 

can you help me?  if you can help me install yum, and use yum to install curl, i will give you 500 points for each question
Since you don't have yum AND you have all these package requirement, my suggestion is to consider an upgrade to the system, if possible.

If not, download each package (libcurl4...) from rpmfind as noted by remeshk, install these with rpm -Uvh and finally install curl as rpm -Uvh.

It is likely you will find other dependencies (libcurl4 requires libXX, which requires libYYY...), but that is the disadvantage of running old distro.

i ended up down loading the sourcecode, and doing a ./configure and make install.... this worked.
