For newer releases I think we've bumped the required version of
libserf even more than that. The older versions have known bugs. So
if it's a choice of building your own libserf or using whatever comes
with the OS, you're probably better off building your own.
As philipm already pointed out Serf doesn't build unless you
specifically ask for it with 1.6/1.7. I changed that a while back in
trunk, so that won't be an issue for 1.8 where Serf is the only HTTP
library we support.
