updates pkgsrcs curl to 7.11.1 (old 7.11.0)


- CURLOPT_POSTFIELDSIZE_LARGE added to offer POSTs larger than 2GB 
- CURL_VERSION_LARGEFILE is a feature bit returned by libcurls that
  feature large file support 
- libcurl only requires winsock 1.1 on windows now
- when doing FTP, curl now sends QUIT before disconnecting 
- name resolves can now timeout on windows too 
- $HOME is now recognized better when looking for .netrc files 
- now re-uses the ares handle when re-using curl handles
- SO_BINDTODEVICE is used for network interface binding 
- configure --disable-manual disables the built-in huge manual from the
  command line tool 
- the default Accept: header used in HTTP requests changed
- asynch dns lookups now require the c-ares library 
- curl --socks can be used to set a SOCKS5 proxy to use
- response-headers received after a (proxy) CONNECT request are now
  passed to the header callback just like other headers 

- builds and runs on Novell NetWare 
- Windows builds now report OS as "i386-pc-win32" 
- received signals during SSL connect is handled better 
- improved PUT/POST with NTLM/Digest authentication 
- following redirects and doing NTLM/Digest (where the first connection
  gets closed) with the multi interface work better now
- file: progress meter and getinfo variables work now 
- CURLOPT_FRESH_CONNECT and CURLAUTH_NTLM now work when set together 
- share interface usage without (un)lock functions segfaulted 
- --limit-rate no longer cripples the --speed-limit feature 
- fixed verbose output problem with ipv6-enabled re-used connections 
- fixed the socks5 code to check version in the socks response properly 
- dns cache bug - fixed the 'inuse' counter 
- large file fix for Content-Length 
- better docs for the share interface 
- several configure fixes for mingw/msys 
- setting a Host: header is no longer affecting the Host: header used
  when libcurl follows a Location: 
- fixed numerous compiler warnings on several operating systems and
- PUTing from stdin couldn't disable chunked transfer-encoding
  corrected the mingw makefiles 
- improved the configure libz detection 
- fixed EPRT/PORT use when doing FTP on ipv6-enabled AIX hosts 
- *nroff commands that only support -mandoc and not -man are now
  supported (for the built-in manual text in the command line tool) 
- fixed the unconditional #include of config.h in hugehelp.c 
- builds fine on MPE/iX 
- upload using chunked transfer-encoding now sends the last chunk
  properly teriminated with an extra CRLF 
- Fixed the progress meter display for files >2GB 
- persistant connections over a proxy messed up the proxy name/password
  the socks5 code segfaulted if no username/password was set 
- the *_LARGE options now take curl_off_t types as parameters and this
  will make it possible to handle large files on windows too 
- builds with large file support even on systems without strtoll()

additional changes be me:
- patch-ab is gone
- new mirror in germany (thought a .net top-level domain, so
  MASTER_SORT will not kick in :-()
- kerberos support added, but untested, if someone else could do that
  please?! :-) (I've removed all kerberos from my sys, so I was not even
  able to compile test it) taken from devel/cvs with minor tweaks
  to make it compile on !KERBEROS hosts

- there's also a tar.bz2 available, do we want to use it instead?
- md5/sha1 verified with debian's

hope you like it,
