This command line was supposed to build curl with SSL, as you were supposed
to install it with $HOME as your prefix, before you built curl! But you
really should use this instead, to configure curl:

 ./configure --with-ssl=$HOME --prefix=$HOME

As that makes curl get installed in your $HOME/bin instead of /usr/local/bin,
since you don't have root access.

I think you should remove the openssl package again, unpack a fresh one, then
do the same steps one more time.
