Python 3.8 would not install on MacOS due to missing SSL

Technically speaking, you can build Python 3.8 or any other current version on current versions of macOS and it will install just fine, but, because Apple has deprecated the use of a system-supplied OpenSSL and no longer supplies the header files to build against their OpenSSL, there won't be a working ssl module nor a lzma module, for that matter, since Apple does not provide a libzma.  There are other, less important modules that do not build out of the box as well.  This is not unique to macOS; each platform that Python supports has its quirks.  But updating the README.rst file to mention OpenSSL on macOS is a good suggestion.  Thanks for the PR.

Due to some bot issues, the 3.7 commit message went AWOL: the changeset id is ee994d7443a7e2809a5d49bd3679fc9c451a411b.  Thanks for the PR!
