I've never seen this happen before. I googled around a bit for this but the
only suggestion I found was on the top of this page: that suggests
that you should use the -mimpure-text together with the -shared option.

The GCC 3 man page says this about that option:

         -mimpure-text, used in addition to -shared, tells the
         compiler to not pass -assert pure-text to the linker
         when linking a shared object.

suggest that you use the shared version of libcurl instead of the static
