W.A. -

When I asked not to top-post, I didn't mean you would quote a previous
message in its entirety above your added text.  I meant that you would
quote relevant context only.  Please learn to quote.

In particular:

This suggests that you need to add the path to OpenSSL libraries to
LDFLAGS.  As I wrote before:

For linking, you might (or might not) also need
"-L/usr/local/opt/openssl/lib" added to LDFLAGS.

Albert, didn't you run into the same issue?  If you did, how did you
work around it?

Yes, it got tricky.  We should enhance our build scripts so that brew's
default installation paths of OpenSSL are automatically detected by JtR.

Thank you for reporting this problem to us.

magnum, can you possibly get the relevant improvements into
bleeding-jumbo within a matter of days, so that instead of providing
"cryptic" instructions on this list, things would just work for a
default OpenSSL install with brew?
