sounds like you are running Etch/stable? http://packages.debian.org/etch/libcurl3
( the lower version of libcurl)
Mike, are you using the 2.4 or 2.6 kernel? I haven't tried running Lenny/testing on mipsel, but it might be fine w/ the 2.6 kernel. http://packages.debian.org/lenny/libcurl3
(higher version available in Lenny)
You might be able to "pin" some things down and just upgrade the essentials to the Lenny-ish versions... instead of doing a distro upgrade.
You might be able to just download that libcurl.deb and try installing it w/ dpkg ... it might complain about it, but it might work, also.
