The verbose output does not include any information about the reason why NSS
failed to initialize. Could you please rebuild libcurl with the following
patch and capture the verbose output again?

Note that there is no vtls/ subdirectory in the source tree of curl-7.29 but
if you just remove that substring from the patch, it applies fine on the el7
source code.
