Everything works perfectly so far except the missing ssl module, due to the build system can’t find openssl. I was told MacOS 10.13 has been switched from openssl to libressl, that might be the cause of the issue.

If you want to build something on OS X which requires openssl, you have to get openssl and build it first.
