The so called curl-ssl packages are depending on the presence of OpenSSL
libraries, so they won't work without them.

Then it shouldn't be a problem related to which libraries that are installed

Well, that is of course your choice, but the manual also says that you should
call curl_global_init(). The fact that it gets called internally was made for
backwards compatibility and is not the recommended way.
Still, I don't think that is a reason to your problems either.
