I've been trying to install goseq on R-2.15.2 but one of the dependencies,  
RCurl is not installing. I've compiled curl and curl-config (7.28.0);  
there is also a system wide installation of curl (7.15.5) in /usr/bin/. I  
tried installing just RCurl but to no avail. I've looked online for help  
for hours but it has been hopeless. I would be extremely grateful if  
someone could let me know what is wrong.

checking for curl-config... /home/davetang/bin/bin/curl-config
