I guess it's really a cross-compiling setup you need.
I haven't done that with libcurl so I cannot assist
you there.
However, you may be able to work around the problem
simply by enabling your Fedora box to execute aout
executables. At least on the fedora boxes I have
seen you can do that like so:

 modprobe binfmt_aout
