Brew install python fail on Maverick ? Here is the solution !

Hi !

I'm might be alone with this issue... but well, guess what, I do not care ! If it could help.

If you meet this infamous error :

checking for krb5-config... /usr/bin/krb5-config
checking for DSA_get_default_method in -lssl... no
checking for X509_free in -lcrypto... yes
checking for pkg-config... no
configure: error: Cannot find OpenSSL's <evp.h>

Well if you search deeply you will find this :

And happyness :

xcode-select --install 

can also save your day ! Wait for the download and run the brew install python again.

Voilà it works !
