As others have mentioned, you're probably using the libcurl packages
from CentOS or RHEL, and that may be significantly different from what
the stock source code from the curl repository would build. However,
you can simply install the debug info for the packages you have
already installed. If I remember correctly, the solution for centos 7
would simply be

debuginfo-install -y libcurl

For other distribuitions, you may have to explicitly add or enable the
repositories that contain the debug info packages.
