looks like it did...

...yes (yes)...

...just uncomment the whole section.
The "$(SSL)" bits will be substituted with the value of SSL, so...
-I$(SSL)/include/openssl becomes -I/usr/local/ssl/include/openssl
which is where "locate" found the headers.

When you've finished re-make-ing, test it with:
	./python ./Lib/test/test_socketserver.py

Hmmm, you can try it, but it might be PHP stuff that just has the same
names as what you want.

I keep running into this because I don't have all the headers
(probably missing a -dev package).  However, I did notice that the
Amaya source installed what I needed because it now does xml stuff;
the line ended up looking like:

If the PHP location doesn't work, http://www.w3.org/amaya ...
Amaya is worth playing with (WYSIWYG (X)HTML editor.browser).

...except for being commented out.  :)
