Thank you so much for sharing. This article just saved my life. I needed to work with an obscure db version that didn't have an easy installer. This article did the trick.

If you need uuid support on Mac, you need to build with e2fs

brew install e2fsprogs

./configure --with-openssl --with-includes=/usr/local/opt/openssl@1.1/include --with-libraries=/usr/local/opt/openssl@1.1/lib --with-uuid=e2fs
