tor's dynamically linked against openssl version not in OSX 10.2

Hey guys - After installing Tor/Privoxy on my OS X 10.2 box and configuring everything according to the docs, I kept on getting Privoxy's 503 error that a few people have mentioned on the net(I haven't seen this solution yet).

Turns out after doing a bit of digging, when tor starts up, it pretty much instantly dies since the dynamic linker cannot find the openssl version 0.9.7:

dyld: ./tor can't open library: /usr/lib/libssl.0.9.7.dylib (No such file or directory, errno = 2)

This post has two purposes:

  • Document the reason people are probably seeing the 503 error
  • Ask the Tor group if it's possible to release a version of tor that's statically linked against OpenSSL 0.9.7 for those do not have it installed.

Personally, this hopefully won't be an issue to me after I upgrade to 10.4 tonight (I had somebody verify that 10.3.9 has openssl-0.9.7) but I'm sure others would appreciate it.

10.2 is pretty old. To build a version of Tor that used openssl 0.9.6 (or whatever 10.2 had),
we'd need access to a computer running it, and we don't have that access right now. If you
wanted to build such a package, you could do so by running "make dist-osx".

Also be aware that there are problems with OSX 10.4 and the development series of Tor (0.1.0.x);
see bug 126 for info on a workaround.

Hm. Since nobody else has complained about this, and since there's an easy workaround (recompile),
I'm going to mark this as "wontfix". Please let me know if you have problems compiling Tor on your
10.2 host, and I'll build one for you.
