CentOS 4 is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, which is in turn based
on Fedora Core 3 (says the wikipedia), and is supposed to be binary
compatible with the former. So, in theory, you should be able to install
openssl from a RH or Fedora RPM package.

You could also have a look at paramiko (http://www.lag.net/paramiko/),
which is a pure Python implementation of SSH2 but dependent on pycrypto
