I don't quite follow.  I think you are suggesting that people be able to
install this instead, so that things that depend on curl could have the
dependency satisfied by gnurl?  That typically requires support in a bl3
file for curl that checks some variable and depends on one or the other.

In pkgsrc, we don't have the notion of forcing options on dependencies.
However, you should be able to fail the build if isn't how you need.
