I am experiencing the same problem(https takes a long time to return when curl is enabled with php) as noted in

after I built our production machine. All the software components and their versions are the same on both machines.

When I did a uname on the server that is working with https and curl enabled I get 

localhost.localdomain 2.2.16-22 #1 Tue Aug 22 16:16:55 EDT 2000 i586 unknown

on the server that is not working it is :-

localhost.localdomain 2.2.16-22 #1 Tue Aug 22 16:17:40 EDT 2000 i686 unknown

Could the differerent instruction set be causing the problem, i686 compared to i586?

I've downloaded the latest build(April 30th) but the make fails with problems with curl headers.

Does anyone know what is this happening?

Can you please provide a small simple script to reproduce this (so that we can use it) also your configure line would be useful.

 This is the confuration I use on build 200104091745

./configure --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs \
--with-config-file-path=/etc/php \
--with-mysql=/usr \
--with-java=/usr/java/jdk1.3 \
--with-ldap \
--with-imap \
--with-curl \
--with-gd \

the URL I use is which is an internal resource.

I managed to get https working with curl by copying from my server that works.

Here is the output of running ldd on both versions :-

#ldd => /lib/ (0x400c9000) => /lib/ (0x400cc000)
        /lib/ => /lib/ 0x80000000)

#ldd => /usr/lib/ (0x4001f000) => /usr/lib/ (0x4004d000) => /lib/ (0x40105000) => /lib/ (0x40108000)
        /lib/ => /lib/ (0x80000000)

For whatever reason CURL on the new server is not using shared objects for and as evidence by them missing and the file size being about 4 times larger than the working version.

For you info I used the following command to build CURL 7.7.1
./configure --with-ssl-

It appears that this is not a PHP problem.
