Building Python-2.6.4 on G/L: can't build in _ssl support.

I build Python-2.6.4 on my GNU/Linux (Debian Sarge) box. I get a warning
message "Failed to find the necessary bits to build these modules: ....
_ssl ... RTFS to find out what!".
I need _ssl for an application. So, I look at setup.py in the top
directory. It seems that _ssl needs to find certain .h files, but is
looking in /usr/local/ssl and /usr/contrib (or subdirectories thereof).
These look like highly non-standard directories.
Either something is hugely amiss, or I'm missing some vital nugget of
information (possibly through not being a Python hacker).
Would somebody please give me a tip to get this sorted out? Thanks!
