For 1 and 2 I agree. I wasn't sure about the relation and exact
reasons, which is why I asked to make sure someone didn't miss
something. Thank you for answering this part of my message.

By the way as a general note regarding gnurl (gnURL ?), if this
bug is fixed before the next release (of cURL), I can use "make
dist" again:

 “” is instantiated from a template by libtool.  It originally
 contains a /bin/sh shebang, and I think it should not be patched when
 installed to


 This seems like a bug to me.
