I don't see how this is a curl problem when this clearly identifies the libssl
to reference a symbol it can't find. (Not that I can understand why it wants
the 'main' symbol in the first place or why it doesn't find it.)

Personally, I build curl and OpenSSL fine on Solaris but I believe I usually
use static libs.

What curl version is this? Did you use gcc to build it? Did you try getting a
pre-built binary?
