Thanks Daniel and David.

I applied that diff and rebuilt. libcurl with BoringSSL now works as
expected. Tested with:
 curl -o test_ssl.html
 lynx -dump test_ssl.html

which says:
 TLS 1.2 Yes*
 TLS 1.1 Yes*
 TLS 1.0 Yes*
 SSL 3 Yes*
 SSL 2 No
 (*) Without JavaScript, this test reliably detects only the highest supported protocol.


David, how could this have gone unnoticed for so long?
