openssl-devel was not installed.
I installed and re-attempted binary installation.
I see the following 2 problems when using the following configure even 
though I told it where the bz2 and libcurl locations were:

./configure --with-xml=/usr/lib64 --with-libncurses-prefix=/lib64 
--without-libpdcurses-prefix --with-libcurl=/usr/lib64 

checking how to link with libbz2... -lbz2
checking for BZ2_bzDecompressInit in -lbz2... no
checking bzlib.h usability... no
checking bzlib.h presence... no
checking for bzlib.h... no
configure: WARNING: ****** bzip2 support disabled

checking for libcurl installation... configure: WARNING: libcurl not 
found. Please use the web interface for submitting FPs/FNs.

Regarding your question about where did I install the yum package from:
I'm not sure which repo the package came from.
I have the following installed:
atrpms, elrepo, epel, epel-testing, rpmforge, sl6x, sl-other, sl
