Why is custombuild using old curl version?

Due to another topic I became aware of this. We always have the curl version from the OS installed already before DA gets installed.

DA is installed with curl=yes in options.conf so we get 2 curl versions installed.

Now I did a check and for example on our Centos 8 server:
7.50.0 -> custombuild curl version
7.61.1 -> OS build curl version (installed and updated via yum).

On Centos 7 the CB version is a lot newer, even newer than the OS version on Centos 8:
7.75.0 -> custombuild version
7.29.0 -> OS build version

I'm confused now. Is there such a big difference between OS and source or why is the CB version a lot older?

I'd suggest checking custom_versions.txt to make sure you do not have any version customized there.

I don't have any custom_versions.txt files on any server. Only curl installed by yum and by CB.

What I checked above whas the OS version in /usr/bin and the CB version in /usr/local/bin.
Then I ran yum list curl to see which version was provided by the OS and so I found out these differences.

I can also do a cat versions.txt | grep curl on the Centos 8 server. Gives this result:
curl:7.75.0:2071994cfc5079d03439915f2751c8bc

so that's odd.

Ah wait.. seems I did something wrong. On the Centos 8 server CB indeed has version 7.75 installed.
So both Centos 7 and 8 have curl 7.75 by custombuild.

No clue on why it gave 7.50 as a result before.
