Installing legacy pythons is _hard_
I think that the trick to installing 3.3.7 is to have homebrew temporarily remove the email@example.com library by entering
brew uninstall openssl
Now, install pyenv with the target version, with all the compiler flags for zlib, bzip2 etc., and the arch detect patch.
brew uninstall --ignore-dependencies firstname.lastname@example.org CPPFLAGS="-I$(brew --prefix openssl)/include -I$(brew --prefix bzip2)/include -I$(brew --prefix readline)/include -I$(xcrun --show-sdk-path)/usr/include" LDFLAGS="-L$(brew --prefix openssl)/lib -L$(brew --prefix readline)/lib -L$(brew --prefix zlib)/lib -L$(brew --prefix bzip2)/lib" pyenv install --patch 3.3.7 < <(curl -sSL https://github.com/python/cpython/commit/8ea6353.patch)
This should force the installer to install the applicable (old) openssl == 1.0.2k and successfully complete.
Reinstall email@example.com when complete.
Other things of note:
which python if it’s not the pyenv shim, add
export PATH="$HOME/.pyenv/shims:$PATH" to your .zshrc

I’m still struggling to get a pyenv virtualenvwrapper pip install to appear from the local python.
