Do you know if 7.16.1 fixes the problem?  This was recently released
to unstable as 7.16.1,REV=2007.02.03.

The package in stable is 7.16, to downgrade further you will have
to get a backup copy and install manually.

First remove curl and curlrt (as root):

# pkgrm CSWcurl CSWcurlrt

Old packages are stored here:
grab the back ups, eg:

$ wget http://blastwave.informatik.uni-erlangen.de/oldpkgs/unstable/spa\

$ gunzip curlrt-7.15.5,REV=2006.08.12-SunOS5.8-sparc-CSW.pkg.gz

and install (as root):
# pkgadd -d  curlrt-7.15.5,REV=2006.08.12-SunOS5.8-sparc-CSW.pkg

and same for curl.
