There's curl and there's curl and there's curl.  Different versions
have different features, and possibly even accept different command
line options.  I've seen the same problem with other binaries.  With
something like Somkeping which uses system binaries to do things for
it, portability is often a problem.  You will either need to find and
perhaps build the right version of curl, or alternatively you could
modify parts of Smokeping to use your existing curl.  That's what I
had to do a while back, I think it might have been for fping.  You
might find posts about it in the list archives.
