Yes it is possible as OWB is able to compile GTK version either with libsoup
network backend or curl's one. So I think you just have to modify GTK build
system to compile curl related files instead of those of libsoup and of
course adding the correct compile flags (like -I/usr/include/curl -lcurl
-DWTF_USE_CURL=1 instead of -DWTF_USE_SOUP=1).
