I would suggest to compile openssl with './config --prefix=/usr/local' and
later compile xmlsec with './configure --with-openssl=/usr/local'. If I 
everything correctly it should solve the problem and you would not need 
to move
some shared libraries around.

No idea. I am not a big Mac expert (actually, I hate Macintosh as a 
development platform).

Yes. But I am not sure that moving system libraries is a right way for 
compiling xmlsec.
See my suggestion above. This works for me (except that I use 
'--prefix=$HOME' instead '--prefix=/usr/local').
