A reinstallation of Python is necessary. The administator should 
carefully watch the messages that are produced when the socket module is 
compiled. If the messages are inconclusive, the administrator should 
edit Modules/Setup to incorporate the socket module into Python, making
an explicit choice as to whether and how to include SSL support.


P.S. The above is, strictly speaking, not true. You can build just
the socket module separately. But if you knew how to do that, you
probably wouldn't have asked, and it is not trivial to do so.
