OpenSSL support in PHP under MAMP

I recently started using a Mac for web development (I don't love it but that's another story). At the recommendation of several friends I'm using MAMP instead of the native Apache, PHP, and MySQL; they said it was much easier to set up. Yesterday, I discovered that MAMP's PHP install does not come with the OpenSSL extension so, for example, you cannot visit HTTPS sites from within PHP.
