I don't understand what is wrong with a simple mandatory version check for 
curl 7.10.x ? Now, granted I'm not a autoconf guru, but doing things like 
"if you have version 7.10.x of curl, then enable YP support, otherwise send 
a warning disabling the yp code" seems just very wrong (and non-standard - 
again not necessarily speaking from experience)....Most people have curl 
installed, just the wrong version, so making sure they have the correct 
version and blowing out of the configure script if not seems appropriate to 
me.

So, I'd suggest :
enable YP by default, check for curl 7.10.x and if either curl does not 
exist, or the version is not current enough, cause configure to error.
keep the --disable-yp for those who don't want to install curl and could 
care less about listing in a yp.
