--with-hdf4 should be enough. If you specify a path behind  --with-hdf4= , it 
must be the root installation directory of the hdf4 ( /usr , /usr/local, etc 
... ), not the path of the .so itself. But with x86_64 RedHat based 
distributions that have stuff in /usr/lib64 , some ./configure detections don't 
work out of the box.

However in the HDF4 case it should work since I can see that in the 
configure.in script :

  if test x"$with_hdf4" = x"yes" -o x"$with_hdf4" = x"" ; then
dnl Fedora has hdf static libraries in /usr/lib/hdf
    if test -d /usr/lib64/hdf; then

I'm surprised  --without-curl doesn't work for you. Perhaps you should look at 
config.log and search "curl" in it to see if something interesting shows up.
