"Could not run curl-config: [Errno 2] No such file or directory" when installing pycurl

I'm trying to install pycurl via:

sudo pip install pycurl


It downloaded fine, but when when it runs setup.py I get the following traceback:

Downloading/unpacking pycurl
Running setup.py egg_info for package pycurl
Traceback (most recent call last):

raise ConfigurationError(msg)

__main__.ConfigurationError: Could not run curl-config: [Errno 2] No such file or directory


Any idea why this is happening and how to get around it

Answer

On Debian I needed the following package to fix this.

sudo apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev
