It picks up the system libcrypto from the default include/lib paths,
which are /usr/include and /usr/lib, respectively.

No, changing PATH won't work. You'll have to pass in -I
/path/to/openssl/include and -L /path/to/openssl/lib.

You can use otool -L /path/to/spiped to verify that it's using the
version of OpenSSL you're expecting.

Yeah, I agree. I'll try to come up with some language to put in BUILDING.
