You do have to build fat libraries of OpenSSL to target the various platforms and use lipo to mirge them. This isn’t unusual for a static library and there are many resources online which will help walk you though the process specifically for OpenSSL. As for libssh2, creating an Xcode project and building it as a framework (not a static library) is the easiest way as it manages the targets for you.
