Excuse me for talking without being 100% sure on this, but since no one else
The curl library is not made to be used by php as-is like that. You must
build the php-stuff that wraps libcurl, and that creates a library that you
can load into php by specifying in that .ini file.
You do that by specifying --with-curl= to the php4 configure script.
I have no idea if this is possible to achive somehow without recompiling php.
