That's definitely not recommended. I don't see how you gain anything by
doing this over linking against a static libcurl. Doing it this way forces
your app to conform to some of the deliberate weirdness that exists within
the libcurl sources. Just don't be surprised if you encounter more of this
kind of problem in the future!
