[CentOS] curl build system is broken and so is mock

No, that is not what it does.  If you posted the full ldd output like I
asked, rather than grepping out bits, you'd see it loading the system

When you run ldd against an arbitrary binary, ldd uses the system
directories to resolve dependencies.  The libcurl you just built is not
in any of those directories, but the system libcurl (that is linked
against libssh2, which pulls in libssl/libcrypto) is.  The dynamic
linker uses the library it can find.

If you want to use a different library, you have to specify the path.
If you look at curl.spec, you will see it set LD_LIBRARY_PATH before
running tests, so that it gets its newly-built libcurl dependency.

There is absolutely nothing magic or broken in curl, its build setup, or
