 The curl dependencies do include openssl, if you use the ssl variant,
 which MacPorts curl does by default and which your terminal output shows
 is being used in your case, so MacPorts should have installed it prior to
 attempting to install curl. If you were to deliberately deselect the ssl
 variant, curl would not attempt to use openssl.

 The only explanation I can think of is that you've found a bug in MacPorts
 base where it did not compute the dependencies of curl properly. I note
 that the log you attached does not contain any of the usual dependency
 verification output. I know that one such bug was fixed in r138461 but
 that situation might be different.
