No, but installing in the /usr/local prefix should also work with
pkg-config. The .pc for libcurl should be located at
/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/libcurl.pc and pkg-config should find it.
Maybe you have to set PKG_CONFIG_PATH in order to have pkg-config pick
Check the output of:
pkg-config libcurl --modversion
It should output 7.18 or what ever your version is, if installed correctly.

Hm... I just looked at the changelist of libcurl and
like version 7.15 may also work, but I haven't tested it. You could
give it a try and edit the configure.in file and change 7.18 to 7.15
and see if that works out.
