RHEL6 is a supported platform and the packages provided by the
Shibboleth project do contain an updated version of libcurl that has
been built against openssl, as well as configuration files that cause
the loading of this library.
So why/how would you run the SP on RHEL and still have the SP run
without the SP package provided libcurl?

And even the libcurl built against nss will be able to do HTTP GET for
metadata documents. Unless you require specific overrides for the
transport to function at all I doubt that whatever issue you're
seening (your not specific about that) are related to that.
