thanks, I reached the next step
But experiencing the next issue, again something was not found.
For better understanding I will copy what the terminal is saying:
eckartsacsimac2:~ eckartsmac$ git clone https://github.com/letsencrypt/letsencrypt

eckartsacsimac2:~ eckartsmac$ /Users/eckartsmac/letsencrypt cd letsencrypt
-bash: /Users/eckartsmac/letsencrypt: is a directory
eckartsacsimac2:~ eckartsmac$ ./letsencrypt-auto certonly -a manual --rsa-key-size 4096 -d homepage.com -d www.homepage.com
-bash: ./letsencrypt-auto: No such file or directory
(of course instead of homepage.com I used my url)
So letsencrypt-auto was not found.
With spotlight I found it and doubleclicked it with the result of the following:
another terminal window opened, saying:

WARNING: Mac OS X support is very experimental at present...
if you would like to work on improving it, please ensure you have backups
and then run this script again with the --debug flag!
So is this all due to the experimental status?
Did you try with MacOS X 10.9.5?
