I have the 32-bit model of curl 7.78.0 built and working with OpenSSL 3.0.0-beta2. I changed the target of the 64-bit model to use ./lib64 in OpenSSL but there is a 32-bit dependency on platform that is interfering (root cause) with the ld. So we'll stick with 32-bit until I can resolve the dependency issue.

Thanks for the help.
