Description of problem:
Hi,

The urlwrite command (and urlread) is a front-end to the the curl library. It seems that curl support was not activated when octave was compiled. curl is in the base repository. It would be great if curl support could be enabled.

Another issue it that mkoctfile uses -lncurses, but octave-devel does not depend on ncurses-devel.

Thank you for maintaining octave!
Alex
