rvm compilation issue - ruby 2.3.3, openssl

While trying to upgrade to the latest available ruby version I ran into a problem. It seemed to be a problem with rvm and after some googling I came across a decent solution.

$ rvm install 2.3.3

There has been an error while running make. Halting the installation.

By executing these two lines ruby 2.3.3 should compile without problems.

$ rvm pkg install openssl
$ rvm install 2.3.3 --with-openssl-dir=$HOME/.rvm/usr
