curl 7.7.2 in macosx 10.2.8 broken with proxies, breaks darwinports

Reported by: mdales@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…

Component: base Version: 1.0

The curl in Mac OS X 10.2.8, version 7.7.2, has a bug with http proxies, where it will not terminate a connection properly, and will sit there waiting for more data. Thus breaks darwinports, as it can not fetch files.

This is a known bug with that version of curl. Upgrading to a newer version fixes the problem.

So what is the bug for DarwinPorts to fix? Should we not support HTTP proxies? should we not use curl? Any other http library has as large a chance of having these types of bugs, and we know going forward that curl will be fixed (e.g. in 10.3)

panther: [sleipnir:/] simrweis% /usr/bin/curl -V curl 7.10.2 (powerpc-apple-darwin7.0) libcurl/7.10.2 OpenSSL/0.9.7b zlib/1.1.4

I'm sitting behind an http-proxy and the http-transfers of port (and /usr/bin/curl) do just fine. Bug squished?
