Doesn't invoking ./configure without params default to GNUTLS? What's the status of GNUTLS on Mac OS X?

Yes, point 3 (without TLS) is not really an option if you want to contact the 'outside'.

Please go ahead !
We really appreciate any help and I don't need to point out that we currently have no active OSX developer here.
Don't mind to ask us any questions.

The FSF copyright assignment is not complicated.
But let's talk about that when it's time to do it.

About the 3rd point first :
Trying to configure without --with-ssl=openssl end up failing with the make.

Also won't it prevent wget from using the ssl protocol?

About the second point :
I have no idea where to look (no ssl.h anywhere) nor how to do that.

Finally :
I ended up building my own copy but to use it I didn't find the configure option and ended up using the flag as proposed here : http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9817337/compiling-wget-with-static-linking-self-compiled-openssl-library-linking-issu

---

$>env CPPFLAGS="-I/dir/to/openssl/include" LDFLAGS="-L/dir/to/ssl/lib" ./configure --with-ssl=openssl

$>make CPPFLAGS="-I/dir/to/openssl/include" LDFLAGS="-L/dir/to/ssl/lib -all-static"

I don't feel it was done nicely in the end, maybe it could be enhanced.

Also I'd like to point out I could probably propose a fix myself but I have never make the step so far to involve in GNU contribution (can be scary at first).

This is no about saying anything was done badly.

From your link:
o We recommend that developers who need OpenSSL build their own copy of it and include that copy in their app. Alternatively you can use native OS X APIs, like Secure Transport.

You now have three possibilities:
1. build your own copy of OpenSSL
2. create a patch to use native OS X APIs
3. do not use --with-ssl=openssl with ./configure

After configuring wget 1.18 with the command :
./configure --with-ssl=openssl

The make fails with the report :

It seems that Apple stop shipping openSSL with their OS ( src : http://lists.apple.com/archives/macnetworkprog/2015/Jun/msg00025.html )

Maybe the configure should be updated.

Relevant information :

  • OS X El Capitan 10.11.6
  • gcc (probably from xcode's installation)
