I can't speak for the curl command line program, but is "libcurl" part of
the curl cli package, or is it separate? It could be that you need to get a
recompiled version of libcurl that supports sftp.

This link mentions that sftp is lacking due to some concern over package

You might want to download the curl source and try building it...or work
with Ubuntu development to resolve the issues.  :-)  (yeah, the first option
is much easier...)

You could also try installing the curl.haxx.se pre-compiled version which
says it has SSL:


(BTW, curl is at 7.19.4 as reported on this URL: http://curl.haxx.se/)
