please try: brew install curl

and then retry installing curb


This doesn't look like a curl issue and vpereira doesn't say that he has homebrew installed. Line 52 is telling:

gcc-4.2: error trying to exec '/usr/bin/i686-apple-darwin11-gcc-4.2.1': execvp: No such file or directory

vpereira, can you please provide the output of ls -lha /usr/bin/gcc* && which gcc && gcc --version? It looks like you're pointing to a version of gcc that isn't installed. Latest Xcode provided version of gcc is 4.2.1, but /usr/bin/gcc defaults to llvm, not gcc. You might have a stale macports configuration or something kicking around. Was this a system you upgraded from Snow Leopard to Lion?
