TLS libraries without 1.3 support

curl drops support for TLS libraries without TLS 1.3 capability after May 2025.

It requires that a curl build using the library should be able to negotiate and use TLS 1.3, or else it is not good enough.

As of May 2024, the libraries that need to get fixed to remain supported after May 2025 are: BearSSL and Secure Transport.
