Not sure what you mean by test case using the backend. But I compiled version 7.63.0 and it looks like it works find. Though I just used git-ftp to upload via sftp, but that worked smooth.

Here is what I did to install it with ubuntu 18.04. I had to compile debhelper too.

git clone
cd debhelper/
sudo apt-get install build-essential po4a
dpkg-buildpackage -uc -us
cd ..
sudo apt-get install dwz
sudo dpkg -i debhelper_12ubuntu1_all.deb

git clone
cd curl/
sudo apt-get install build-essential libssh-dev
dpkg-buildpackage -b -rfakeroot -us -uc
cd ..
sudo dpkg -i libcurl*.deb
sudo dpkg -i curl*.deb

Here the versions output:

# curl --version
