Need help with ./configure (curl-7.32.0.tar.gz)

I'm trying to configure curl-7.32.0.tar.gz on Mac OS X 10.8.5:

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

When configure completes:

  curl version: 7.32.0
  Host setup: x86_64-apple-darwin12.5.0
  Install prefix: /usr/local
  Compiler: /usr/local/bin/clang
  SSL support: no
(--with-{ssl,gnutls,nss,polarssl,cyassl,axtls,winssl,darwinssl} )
  SSH support: no (--with-libssh2)

  $ ls /usr/local/ssl/include/
  $ ls /usr/local/ssl/lib/
  engines libcrypto.dylib libssl.dylib
  libcrypto.1.0.0.dylib libssl.1.0.0.dylib pkgconfig
  libcrypto.a libssl.a

I have a few questions:

    (1) What is FILE support?
    (2) OpenSSL 1.0.1e is in /usr/local/ssl. How do I use it?
    (3) Will HTTPS become available once I use OpenSSL?
    (4) Are there options to specifically disable SSLv2 and SSLv3?
    (5) Is there an option to specifically disable compression?

Thanks in advance.
