Guys, please try to keep your postings actually useful.  Neither of the
two above was useful: a non-helpful answer, and an obvious rewording of
the question.  Also, W.A., please don't top-post.

Apple says:

"We recommend that developers who need OpenSSL build their own copy of
it and include that copy in their app.  Alternatively you can use native
OS X APIs, like Secure Transport."

Other OpenSSL-using projects and their users are typically posting this
kind of instructions for installing OpenSSL with Homebrew:

An excessive superset of those appears to be:

brew doctor
brew update
brew upgrade
brew install openssl
brew link openssl --force
cd /usr/local/include
ln -s ../opt/openssl/include/openssl .

Per a GitHub comment above, this might also work:

xcode-select --install
cd /usr/local/include
ln -s ../opt/openssl/include/openssl .

The symlink should take care of the JtR build finding the headers.
For linking, you might (or might not) also need
"-L/usr/local/opt/openssl/lib" added to LDFLAGS.

Some other people are building OpenSSL from source manually:

If you do this, you should preferably verify the signature on your
download before extracting the tarball, and avoid building as root.

I haven't tested any of this.  W.A., or anyone, if you do, please post
in here to let us know which of these worked for you, and please be
specific about issues you might run into and work around, if any.
