Is there any way for curl to initialize SSL on-demand ?

Yes, but not without drawbacks.

If you don't call curl_global_init() at all, libcurl will notice that on first use and then libcurl will call global_init by itself with a default bitmask.

That automatic call of course will prevent the application from being able to set its own bitmask choice, and also the global_init function is not (necessarily) thread safe while all other libcurl functions are so the internal call to global_init from an otherwise thread-safe function is unfortunate.
