New submission from David Kirkby <david.kirkby at onetel.net>:

In the top level setup.py there is a list of directories searched for the OpenSSL libraries. 

       ssl_libs = find_library_file(self.compiler, 'ssl',lib_dirs,
                                     ] )

 # Detect SSL support for the socket module (via _ssl)
        search_for_ssl_incs_in = [

On Solaris 10, (but not Open Solaris), OpenSSL comes as part of the operating system, but the libraries reside in /usr/sfw/lib. 

drkirkby at kestrel:~$ ls  /usr/sfw/lib/libssl*
/usr/sfw/lib/libssl.so        /usr/sfw/lib/libssl.so.0.9.7

Could you simply add /usr/sfw/lib to the library search path, so they are found on Solaris 10? 

The include files reside in /usr/sfw/include/openssl

on Solaris 10.
