My ISP did only a partial upgrade to 7.20; how can I complete it?

Hello everyone --

I have a dedicated server at my ISP. Architecture is x86-64 running Linux redhat kernel 2.6.18-164.6.1.el5xen.

I use libcurl.a in every one of my programs.

Someone (maybe cPanel; maybe using the binary RPM) has done an upgrade to 7.20 from 7.19. My C code now doesn't compile: the .h files that used to be in /usr/include/curl/curl (I think) after a build are not there. Nor are they under /opt/curlssl/include/curl/...

The include directory looks like this; root owns all the files and they are timestamped Dec 16 14:25:

> pwd
> ls -alt
drwxr-xr-x ... 4096 ./
drwxr-xr-x ... 4096 ../
-rw-r--r-- ... 7146 curlbuild.h
-rw-r--r-- ...70293 curl.h
-rw-r--r-- ... 8419 curlrules.h
-rw-r--r-- ... 2799 curlver.h
-rw-r--r-- ... 3526 easy.h
-rw-r--r-- ... 2850 mprintf.h
-rw-r--r-- ...13039 multi.h
-rw-r--r-- ... 1383 stdcheaders.h
-rw-r--r-- ...33416 typecheck-gcc.h
-rw-r--r-- ... 15 types.h

Am I safe, legal, kosher, and mostly standard if I edit and move the few required .h files to their proper subdirectory? If not, then how can I become so?

Thanks so much! I appreciate your help: my dev waits until I solve this problem. I can't really afford the time to learn how and to build libcurl.
