no; the binary packages do *not* contain libssh2, nor are they build for
libssh2 usage unless explicitely claimed to do so.
Therefore you need to compile both self; first libssh2, then libcurl.
As I told you before you can do that self in your homedir if you build
static versions + point libcurl's configure to your static libssh2
build; there is no need to install these system-wide - though sure makes
things simpler for you since then you dont need to do it yourself :)

GŁnter.
