   Gotot directory where is, start python nd import _socket.
Look tthe error message nd fix problems.
   I did exactly this a week ago, while trying to compile sockets with SSL.
It turned out that my OpenSSL was ratjer old, and socketmodule.c made calls
that were not in the ssl library. I edited socketmodule.c and successfully
recompiled and instlled it.
