so it would be:

libcurl4-dev           provide: libcurl-dev
libcurl4-openssl-dev   provide: libcurl-dev, libcurl-ssl-dev, libcurl3-openssl-dev
libcurl4-gnutls-dev    provide: libcurl-dev, libcurl-ssl-dev, libcurl3-gnutls-dev

libcurl-dev and libcurl-ssl-dev are already in place since the
non-ssl/ssl scission, long time ago.

my intention is to add also a non-ssl libcurl flavour with
libcurl4-dev.  libcurl3-dev has been a transition package to install
libcurl3-openssl-dev. hence those depending on libcurl3-dev instead of
libcurl3-openssl would have a bug.
