NetSurf Fails on Fedora 9

NetSurf 1.2 won't load any page on Fedora 9, it just says "Opening
page..." with the throbber animation running.
I think this is due to a change in libcurl 7.18.1
- setting the CURLOPT_SSL_CTX_FUNCTION with libcurl built
without OpenSSL now makes curl_easy_setopt() properly return
(Fedora 8 used libcurl 7.16, both Fedora packages appear to be built
against NSS for SSL support).
If I comment out lines 614 and 615 of content/fetchers/fetch_curl.c it
Without these lines access to HTTP and HTTPS sites seems to work fine so
I'm not sure they're necessary. But I'm not a libcurl or SSL expert so
maybe there's a very good reason for them?
