Dave Jones blogged about his recent problems with curl on Fedora 8. It seems to be a problem somewhere in or related to the NSS library, that Fedora links curl to for SSL/TLS these days.
What I find a bit annoying with this situation, is that I’m using Debian unstable and I’m dist-upgrading fairly frequently to be able to run on the bleeding edge and yet I don’t have the equivalent NSS version Fedora has and what’s perhaps worse is: I don’t even know how to get it and build my own local version! Is Fedora using their own patched version of this (rhetorical question as I’m quite sure they are)? Is it possible to get that version or patch so that I can build it and test on my non- Fedora development machine(s) ?
So, even though it really isn’t my problem or my issue to deal with, I couldn’t even try out his problem on my own!

Install and run Fedora in a virtualbox?
Yes I _could_ do that but it’s quite a lot of work just because they don’t provide enough information…
Perhaps you could check the .spec file which the RPM is built with, it will tell which patches have been applied to the vanilla source. Taking a peek, it looks like there are 5 patches:
