Is this a new problem or did you not try autoconf before?

It means the configure script doesn't find OpenSSL (we are supposed to 
check in all places that the legacy Makefile does, and more). Try 
installing pkg-config, that is the easiest fix (hopefully). Failing that 
you need to tell configure where the OpenSSL stuff is, see "./configure 

But if this is an ordinary OSX system, it should just work.
