Last weekend I built the debian curl package for maemo (Nokia 770's platform). Eventually I'm going to use the package to build a mirroring utility.
Only minimal changes where required- such as disabling the generation of postinst and postrm scripts.
curl and libcurl3 both install using the Application Installer and work well. However not all of the build tests wouldn't run under qemu-arm (the HTTP tests were complaining the socket was already bound). I'll try again with CPU Transparency next weekend.
All the binaries and sources are here.
Update: Slight changes to packages (URLs changed above)
Furthermore using CPU Transparency didn't help with the build tests, although I haven't given up yet...
