I installed curl-ssl under RedHat 7.0 with no trouble whatsoever. When I
tried installing under RedHat 7.1 I got the following error:

        # rpm -Uvh curl-ssl-7.7.3-1.i386.rpm
        error: failed dependencies:
     is needed by curl-ssl-7.7.3-1
     is needed by curl-ssl-7.7.3-1

I tried correcting this with a couple symlinks since RedHat 7.1 no longer
has a or

        ln -s
        ln -s

I also tried running /sbin/ldconfig in /usr/lib since I saw that suggested
in a few places.

I have openssl-0.9.6-3 installed and it seems to be working fine.

Unfortunately the dependency is still not met and I’m not sure where to go
from here. Has anyone run across this and resolved it?
