In, I understand that Ned wishes to update the macOS build docs prior to linking to them from the dev guide.

All I know is that for 3.7 and 3.8 (3.6 is different), I have this little helper script to build against Homebrew libraries.


export CPPFLAGS="-I$(brew --prefix sqlite3)/include -I$(brew --prefix zlib)/include"
export LDFLAGS="-L$(brew --prefix sqlite3)/lib -L$(brew --prefix zlib)/lib"
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/local/opt/openssl/lib/pkgconfig"

I also have a script that does something very similar (, invoked with `python -m jaraco.develop.macos-build-python` (or `pip-run -m jaraco.develop -- -m jaraco.develop.macos-build-python` if you don't have it installed).
