This one really depends on curl (more precisely depends
on libcurl).

These have indirect dependencies, as shown by ldd -u -r. The direct 
dependency is on  It comes from the link command, 
dap-config, which uses in turn the curl-config output:
-L/usr/kerberos/lib -lcurl -lgssapi_krb5 -lkrb5 -lk5crypto -lcom_err -lresolv -ldl -lidn -lssl -lcrypto -lz  

If I'm not wrong precising all the libraries to link against is needed
for static linking, but not for dynamic linking. 

I think it would be better to avoid rebuilding the lib/apps which don't 
depend directly on a library. Is it possible to get rid of the unneeded 
direct dependencies cleanly?
