It turns out this format works fine when I add "-I/opt/local/include" for macports' libgmp (perhaps because this affects OpenSSL too) while it fails if I don't (but just go with Apple's stuff). Maybe there is no problem in the format but somewhere else.

The working build shows this in
OpenSSL library version: 1000103f

While the failing one shows this:
OpenSSL library version: 90812f	(loaded: 1000103f)

BTW despite the above clearly showing we are loading SSL dynamically, I never see libssl here:
$ otool -L ../run/john
	/usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current version 169.3.0)
	/usr/lib/libz.1.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current version 1.2.5)
	@rpath/libcudart.dylib (compatibility version 1.1.0, current version 4.2.0)
	/System/Library/Frameworks/OpenCL.framework/Versions/A/OpenCL (compatibility version 1.0.0, current version 1.0.0)

Not sure if there is anything we should change in JtR... probably not.
