Many thanks for the help. I had tried to read up, I am a beginner at some of
this so it probably takes me a lot longer than some people.
Anyway I have it all working now thanks for the help.
Just in case anyone else wants to know you do not have to rebuild
Shibboleth, just restart the demon sbibd and it picks up the new libcurl.

Thanks again for your help.

Best regards
