Agreed, this is not an ideal solution. It *might* cause crashes
or random failures, but then again, it *might* work perfectly.
The flip side is that using an old version of libcurl *might*
expose some bugs and/or vulnerablilities that have been fixed
more recent versions.
Without actually digging into the application code, it's hard to
predict what will happen with an ugly hack like that.

Nice work, Brian.
But by far the best solution is to rebuild the program to use
the latest and greatest libcurl
