Re: Cannot install Fiona on Mac OS, GDAL installed via homebrew

Hi Amit,

I haven't seen this error before, but I also stopped developing fiona on macOS two years ago. High Sierra was what I was using. looks like it could be relevant.

This is my first interaction with Fiona (and geo-related platforms in general), I ended up here after failing to install `geoplot` and `geopandas` using a package manager (Poetry), and finally pinned it down to issues installing Fiona.

I cannot seem to install Fiona. This is what I am currently doing:

1. Install GDAL through hombrew (`brew install gdal`)
2. Create a new venv (named `fiona_test`), using Python 3.9.0 (managed by pyenv).
3. Activate the venv.
4. run `gdal-config --version` seems to be fine -> shows `3.2.1`
5. run `pip install fiona` -> results in error.

Running macOS Catalina Version 10.15.17.

Full error on terminal is attached.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!
