CURL requires library files

Hi ,

I am new to curl and I have a requirement to download files using FTPS
protocol. Our team has installed curl in our server(unix,SOLARIS) and when
I type curl at the command prompt I am getting error message as the
following libraries are missing.

Sample error message: curl: fatal: open failed: No such file or directory

Following is the curl version installed in our server,

$ curl --version (This is in my dev server)
curl 7.18.2 (sparc-sun-solaris2.10) libcurl/7.18.2 OpenSSL/0.9.8h
zlib/1.2.3 libidn/1.8
Protocols: tftp ftp telnet dict http file https ftps
Features: IDN IPv6 Largefile NTLM SSL libz

My question is, do we need to install any other package(s) along with curl
to avoid these error messages and curl to work ?
Your help is much appreciated.
