I have problem downloading some applications with homebrew. I could get them when the download urls start with https://
but curl fails when the urls start with, ftp:// or http://
For example, I want to install GMT (generic mapping tools) with homebrew on my Mac OS 10.7.4. and I get the error below. I think curl has problem downloading .tar.gz file, but I have no problem downloading the same file with Firefox.
$ brew install homebrew/science/gmt ==> Tapping homebrew/science Cloning into '/usr/local/Library/Taps/homebrew/homebrew-science'... remote: Counting objects: 553, done. remote: Compressing objects: 100% (551/551), done. remote: Total 553 (delta 2), reused 67 (delta 1), pack-reused 0 Receiving objects: 100% (553/553), 432.61 KiB | 367 KiB/s, done.

As a workaround, I downloaded the
make-3.3.1.tar.gz file with Firefox and copied it to
/Library/Caches/Homebrew/ and it worked. So I downloaded the .tar.gz files for each dependency. They all worked until downloading a .zip file
proj-datumgrid-1.5.zip which looks like a data file used by the dependency
Maybe I need to rename the .zip file downloaded somehow so that Homebrew recognize it. Or should I need to put it elsewhere . How does homebrew use these files?
