No, the crypto libraries are not needed by curl directly and shouldn't be
linked. That change was made to libcurl between the two versions you cite.
What should be happening is that the crypto libs should be linked into
libcurl instead. What does the link line look like? You
should also see the crypto libs references in the output of "objdump -p

Are you sure you have a 64-bit version of the OpenSSL on your system to
allow the 64 bit to compile?
