I honestly believe you are wrong on this. I think you have two (lib)curl
installtions in your system and you've got a mix of libraries and curl-config.

Yes it does if you use --with-ssl (without a given path). With /usr/local/ssl
as root in the dir hierarchi it use to check for libs and includes. You can
easily verify this by reading

If you don't use --with-ssl it doesn't look for headers in /usr/local/ssl,
only in the compiler's default paths.
