Mac OS X Curl +SSL Support via DarwinPorts

If you attempt to use the default curl install through port, you may be disappointed to find that https et al won't work. The default install does not include support for ssl, which is a variant.

However, if you already have curl installed you may have to uninstall it first.
sudo port uninstall curl
Moreover, if you have multiple versions installed, you may have to uninstall the default - in my case 7.17.0_0 (don't forget the @ symbol)
sudo port uninstall curl @7.17.0_0
Finally, reinstall with the ssl variant:
sudo port install curl +ssl

without uninstall worked pretty well.
