Curl has the advantage that it's developed outside the US. I don't know
about the legality of the US mirror. In my case, I built from source and
linked against the RSA-licensed SSL library I had from a secure (non-free)

I don't want to look too far in the future, but as of early September, it
no longer matters since the patent expires.
