Making hashcat work on Mac

Tested (to a really minimal extent) on an intel Big Sur 11.6.4. This is still a work in progress…

Install using MacPorts

sudo port install hashcat

Put this in your shell environment

export OPENCL_ROOT=/opt/local/share/hashcat/OpenCL

This benchmark should then work

hashcat -b -D 2 -d 3

Running with /opt/local/share/hashcat/OpenCL as the PWD can also help in getting certain operations to work
