  All FreeRADIUS development is done on a Mac.  :)

  Use homebrew, and install its version of OpenSSL, libtalloc etc.  The OpenSSL shipped with OSX is old an annoying.

  Then, point "configure" at the right places.  For me, it's just:

$ ./configure --with-openssl-include-dir=/opt/homebrew/opt/openssl at 3.0/include/ --with-openssl-lib-dir=/opt/homebrew/opt/openssl at 3.0/lib/
