_socket.dsp is the Visual C++ project file for the _socket module, and 
irrelevant for Solaris.

Most likely, Python finds an unusable OpenSSL installation. To work 
around this problem, either
a) make the OpenSSL installation usable (requires further analysis),
b) remove it, or
c) edit Modules/Setup to build Python without SSL support

As another option: Ignore the failure. It means Python won't support 
sockets. Whether this is a problem or not depends on whether your Python 
applications require sockets.
