That's a very good question. I don't have an older box to check, but I
doubt it would work without recompiling the RPM since the major revision
number of libssl and libcrypto changed from 0 to 1.

Thanks for the suggestion! It's not necessary for me right now since the
version that came with RedHat 7.1 PowerTools worked, but if I need to
upgrade cURL before this is fixed I'll rebuild from source.
