At the PyCon US sprints, we looked into this and updated the Developer's Guide with suggestions for how to configure a build on macOS with either Homebrew or MacPorts for either 3.7+ or earlier.  It is not an ideal solution so I want to keep this open for now and reassign to me but it should no longer be a "deferred blocker".

For reference, the devguide now recomments this:


$ brew install openssl xz
and configure python versions >= 3.7:

./configure --with-pydebug --with-openssl=$(brew --prefix openssl)
or configure python versions < 3.7:

$ CPPFLAGS="-I$(brew --prefix openssl)/include" \
  LDFLAGS="-L$(brew --prefix openssl)/lib" \
  ./configure --with-pydebug


$ sudo port install pkgconfig openssl xz
and configure:

$ CPPFLAGS="-I/opt/local/include" \
  LDFLAGS="-L/opt/local/lib" \
  ./configure --with-pydebug
