A check has been added at configure time which solves the problem. It has been pushed to the main repo.

The new 3.42 version of CFITSIO can deal with the HTTPS protocol (see its changes). But to do that it needs the libcurl library. If the user has `libcurl' on their system when CFITSIO is being configured, then CFITSIO will be built by linking with libcurl.

Therefore, in the existing version of Gnuastro the `./configure' command will fail on systems that have `libcurl' because the linker will not find symbols of the `libcurl' library.

I am now adding a check at configure time to solve this issue.
