Download Metalinks with cURL for Debianish distros

This snap ships a build of cURL with [Metalink][1] support to provide a workaround for Debianish GNU/Linux distribution where the feature is not enabled due to the missing packaging of libmetalink([Debian][2], [Ubuntu][3]).

This snap does not guarantee to be up-to-date with upstream and free of security exploits, and is only recommended for downloading metalinks only.
