I'm trying to install the curl package for haskell, I'm using Ubuntu and
I've already installed curl-7.18.2. I can't get rid of the configuration error.
According to the log entry the curl.h doesn't exist.

Shell output:

runghc Setup.hs configure
Configuring curl-

checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out

checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for gcc option to accept ANSI C... none needed
checking how to run the C preprocessor... gcc -E
configure: error: curl libraries not found, so curl package cannot be built
See `config.log' for more details.

Part of Log entry:

configure:2439: gcc -E  conftest.c

configure:2445: $? = 1
configure: failed program was:

Any ideas?
