I'm not sure what the problem is here. I've googled around for this issue but couldn't find anything.

Only thing I did was install a new postgres and I made following change:

sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/apt/ precise-pgdg main' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pgdg.list"
wget --quiet -O - http://apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/apt/ACCC4CF8.asc | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install postgresql-common -t saucy
sudo apt-get install postgresql-9.2 libpq-dev

After I wanted to install libcurl openssl and gnutls dev and got:

me@kippeke:~$ sudo apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev

Can't answer my own question until after 8 hours I posted it because my reputation is to low. But I know the answer:

Don't mind the idiot who can't understand the error message :)

I can install libcurl4-openssl-dev or libcurl4-gnutls-dev and not both. That's the conflict...
