I am trying to compile Python-3.6.8 from source on MacOS Mojave by running ./configure --prefix ~/my-python-install && make and for some reason configure script can not find ssl library (I see The necessary bits to build these optional modules were not found: ... _ssl message after i run make)

I am guessing that i am not doing something wrong, like not passing proper configure options. Is there is a way to solve this by pointing configure script to use MacOS system install of SSL? (ie without installing SSL thorough MacPorts or Brew). Thanks,
