Last option has worked well for me: PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/local/opt/openssl/lib/pkgconfig" make build

when I do this, I get

make: *** No rule to make target `build'. Stop.

overall its very weird, because when i try to install openssl, it tells me that it already exists. However, when I try to use it it cant find it. I would be very grateful for help!!

brew install openssl installs the newest 1.1 version of openSSL.
Therefore the linking commands with libcrypto version 1.0.0 proposed above would not work.

ln -s /usr/local/opt/openssl/lib/libcrypto.1.0.0.dylib /usr/local/lib/ should be
ln -s /usr/local/opt/openssl/lib/libcrypto.1.1.dylib /usr/local/lib/. However, this did not work for my use case either.


What did work was downgrading to openSSL 1.0 using @igormelao's code from this issue:

brew uninstall openssl 
brew uninstall openssl
brew install https://github.com/tebelorg/Tump/releases/download/v1.0.0/openssl.rb

There are 2 uninstall commands to make sure any OpenSSL v1.1 is removed, and any dead v1.0 is removed, before installing v1.0.

I got another problem when I uninstall 1.1 after install 1.0.

ruby-2.6.5/lib/ruby/2.6.0/x86_64-darwin17/digest/sha1.bundle, 9): Library not loaded: /usr/local/opt/openssl@1.1/lib/libssl.1.1.dylib

so I figure out to install both.

at first, cp the /usr/local/opt/openssl to /usr/local/Cellar/openssl/1.0.2t
then, uninstall 1.0 and reinstall 1.1.

brew uninstall openssl
brew install openssl@1.1

finally, link the old version to /usr/local/opt/openssl with below

ln -sf /usr/local/Cellar/openssl/1.0.2t /usr/local/opt/openssl

ANDDDDD... after accidentally upgraded openssl (and brew), this is no longer working for me. somehow.

But I find this working (no need to do the last step - brew switch... )

For compilers to find openssl@1.1 you may need to set:
  export LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/opt/openssl@1.1/lib"
  export CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/local/opt/openssl@1.1/include"

when you perform this export commands in the terminal above issue got resolved for me.

In M1 chip computers, the installations are placed in /opt/homebrew/opt instead of /usr/local/opt.
So we should use the following:

export LDFLAGS="-L/opt/homebrew/opt/curl/lib -L/opt/homebrew/opt/openssl/lib"
export CPPFLAGS="-I/opt/homebrew/opt/curl/include -I/user/local/opt/openssl/include"
