Maybe you could try the statically-linked ferret from

Or (probably not the recommended approach) you could try to
"fake" ferret into believing you had the right curl version:

mkdir ~/old-curl
ln -s /usr/lib/ ~/old-curl/

Still another approach would be to place a "real" copy of
in the ~/old-curl instead of just sym-linking to
You should be able to find an old floating around on the
web somewhere.

Of course the best approach might be to contact the author, and ask for his advice or
perhaps even get the sources and link to the latest libcurl.
