please see
gnurl dependency is not a thing anymore since September 2022.
gnurl itself is unmaintained.

we now detect both debian style renamed symbols (curl-gnutls) as well as a normal curl optionally compiled against gnutls. gnutls detection is also done at runtime.

Hence many distributions (now also including OpenWrt[1]) now offer

to change the soname from 'curl' to 'curl-gnutls'.

Sadly, this is not (yet) the case for Alpine Linux. Here, curl is
linked against OpenSSL and there is no package called curl-gnutls.

Maybe the fact that gnURL is a relict of the past should be officially
announced or at least more prominently stated on the project website?

I agree, some update is needed on how to handle this.

Also I'd like to point out that the information about gnURL on is reachable under

but not under
