ldd is a symlink to ../lib/ However, I found a 
solution in another thread (where I accidentally replied to). I did 
remember that I changed the sys_path in dynlink.c. At this time I didn't 
know all lib pathes. I did add the missing ones and all is working fine 
for me. The root cause was that libcurl was used by git and didn't  find 
libssl. This is working now. As suggested I have replaced the link with 
the script too.
