Any help would be greatly appreciated~~

You need to install libcurl (or it might be installed but cannot be found). What system are you in? (In linux you can try apt-get install libcurl or similar to install it). Technically not a bioinformatics question...

Alternatively: sudo yum install libcurl-devel (or similar)
