Why my gpg does not support hkps?

I was changing my ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf values today and with those was using hkps instead of the regular hkp.

And found out my debian system said gpg did not support that protocol hkps. What?!

Doing a little search I found out the package gnupg does not ship with hkps support because is not built with libcurl, if you want to have hkps support just install gnupg-curl and done, now my servers are going on hkps.

Any comment goes best to my twitter here.
