Did you build your own libcurl, or are you using the system's libcurl or one from MacPorts? Are you sure the app isn't being linked against the system's libcurl? The only way to know for sure is to run the "otool" command against the binary with the -L option. If the path "/usr/lib/libcurl.*.dylib" shows up, then you're doing it wrong.

If you are using your own libcurl, did you pass the --enable-debug option to the configure script?
