failed tests building curl 7.26

I'm trying to build curl 7.26. Everything seems to go OK, but two tests failed:

TESTDONE: 547 tests out of 549 reported OK: 99%
TESTFAIL: These test cases failed: 554 587
TESTDONE: 681 tests were considered during 261 seconds.

The things of note while running make test:

test line 1: 34194 Bus error: 10 ./libtest/lib554 > log/stdout554 2> log/stderr554
test 563...OK (389 out of 678, remaining: 01:53)
Will not run ssh server as root to mitigate security risks
RUN: failed to start the SSH server
test line 1: 34638 Segmentation fault: 11 ./libtest/lib587 > log/stdout587 2> log/stderr587

Are these something I should worry about?

I'm on MacOS 10.7.4, my version of gcc is:

i686-apple-darwin11-llvm-gcc-4.2 (GCC) 4.2.1 (Based on Apple Inc. build 5658) (LLVM build 2335.15.00)

I configured curl with:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-ssl=/usr/local

And /usr/local contains OpenSSL 1.0.0d

Happy to provide more information and do more digging under direction -- I'm just trying to build this as a precursor to trying out a bunch of perl modules which build on top of it.
