This hint relates specifically to Mac OS X (10.1). It can also apply to Darwin. The "Darwin Development Tools" include the neccessary headers for SSL, which were not included with the "Apple Developer Tools." You'll need to have both to be successful at securing Webmin.

I believe an Apple ADC membership is required to download the Apple dev tools. The Darwin tools require no membership.

Looks good

How do I tell it where the Perl libraries are, i think it should be /System/Library/Perl/darwin/CORE ?

Sounds like you don't have the Developer Tools installed...
