Get the libssh2-1-dev package, which contains the headers and required
development bits to compile a program against libssh2.  The libssh2-1
package just contains the runtime libraries.

Also, I'd advise that you get the Debianized/Ubuntu-ized curl source
via 'apt-get source curl', and use the debian/Ubuntu tools to rebuild
the package with the options you want.  That'll allow you to continue
managing the package via standard package tools.
