New submission from Moritz Sichert:

In 7955d769fdf5 a bug of #14330 got fixed and it got backported for 2.7.
But these changes were reverted by another backport in 8ee6d96a1019 (which was a backport for #17086).

The issue here is that right know setup.py looks for ssl and other libs' headers in /usr/include *first* before it searches in /usr/local/include.
That makes it really hard to compile python with a setup where you have a newer version of openssl in /usr/local than the one in /usr.
