If your app won't even start, then it's unlikely to be a curl problem. It's
probably a mismatch between compiler switches on your app and the libraries
you're liking against, or using incompatible processor switches. Try getting
a "hello world" program working first before integrating curl. Or, try
statically linking your application to all its libraries to try to narrow
the source of the problem.
