And you did install your newly built libcurl in /usr/local/lib ? You should
verify that "/usr/local/bin/curl -V" displays SSL as supported.

There's no doubt that your program uses a libcurl that isn't SSL-enabled. You
should try 'ldd testHTTPS.exe' to see exactly what libs it'll link with in
run-time, as I guess you have multiple versions installed and probably
picks another one then the SSL-enabled one you just installed.
