[smokeping-users] Curl WARNING: curl exited with status 4

I've been a smokeping user for several years; just built/migrated to a 
new Smokeping server (from FreeBSD 7 to Ubuntu 12.04.02).  I'm getting 
the error - "Curl: WARNING: curl exited with status 4 on 
www.mydomain.net".  According to the manpage for curl, I'm not seeing an 
exit code 4 ( http://linux.die.net/man/1/curl). However, 
http://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/c/libcurl-errors.html indicates:


A requested feature, protocol or option was not found built-in in this 
libcurl due to a build-time decision. This means that a feature or 
option was not enabled or explicitly disabled when libcurl was built and 
in order to get it to function you have to get a rebuilt libcurl.

So I'm not sure how to resolve this.
