I use octave-2.9.14. What am I doing wrong?


Do you have curl (library and in development package) installed?
They are named libcurl3 and libcurl3-dev in Ubuntu/Debian and curl and 
curl-devel in Fedora.
The configure script should tell you if curl was found.

(You didn't specify the operating system you are using and from where you got octave. I assumed that you compiled from source under Linux).
