On macOS it would be the easiest using Homebrew for installing dependencies.

I guess, you can install Homebrew on your own - it's really straightforward. Official website is:

After you have installed Homebrew just execute "brew install openssl".

I am not quite sure which other dependencies JtR has, but you can find nearly any library and/or tool within Homebrew - maybe even JtR itself.

Because you are not just trying to install JtR but compile it from source. So you are responsible for resolving dependencies based on which are mandatory and modules you want to get compiled into the final binary.

Keep in mind you also need a working compiler, e.g. XCode or XCode-Comandline-Tools.
