Thanks Dan. Could you please explain in bit detail about "Or, maybe just
temporarily move the dynamic out of the way during
the build."?

If I point to libssl.a somewhere in the build, would it build ssl statically
with libcurl. Could you pls explain where exactly I could specify this?

Because when I included -static option in LDFLAGS, it built everything
statically including libc.
