:When I uncomment the three lines for SSL enable sockets, I do make
:install, and then I try make test (this is a fresh install, since I
:started over). The make test command gets almost nowhere. I get the
:following message:
:[thinker@FQ-Nine:/big/dom/xthinkspot/Python/Python-2.1.1 ]$ make test
:gcc  -Xlinker -export-dynamic -o python \

I finally gave up on the idea of SSL enabled sockets, and uncommented
out the line above that in the Setup file for sockets without SSL

I got compile.

After make test I get this message:

123 tests OK.
16 tests skipped: test_al test_cd test_cl test_dl test_gl test_imgfile
test_largefile test_linuxaudiodev test_minidom test_nis test_pyexpat
test_sax test_socketserver test_sunaudiodev test_winreg test_winsound

So, I guess this is OK. I don't understand why I can't get SSL support
for my sockets, but I guess that is a topic for another day. At least,
now, I should be able to put my scripts back up.

Thank you to everyone for their suggestions.
