I agree, I think this is an error. I will suggest the following:

- revert the CURL_CONFIG=no change you just made
- change the CURL_CONFIG/SSL_CONFIG tests from

   "${CURL_CONFIG}" != "no"


   "${CURL_CONFIG}" = "yes"

This will ensure that the CURL is only searched for if --with-curl is 
supplied, and --without-curl won't have the side effects it had before.
