 Replying to [comment:3 ryandesign@…]:
 > MacPorts can't rely on a MacPorts-provided curl library existing. (It
 won't, for example, when you initially install MacPorts, since no ports
 have been installed yet at that point.) I've long thought that we should
 bundle a newer copy of libcurl with MacPorts to solve issues like this. I
 filed #51516 for this.
 Thank you for filing this as enhancement idea! And don't forget to bundle
 the ca certs.

 Of course this hack is not seriously recommended. I was just curious if my
 speculation on the reasons for these download troubles was correct :-)
