Well, that's exactly what I meant by "I would certainly like to be able
to use the latest version of pyOpenSSL". The current release of
pyOpenSSL (0.13) fails to build against OpenSSL 0.9.8e and older. Daniel
found the upstream bug report for this:
I posted a comment confirming that the patch seen on the ticket works on
CentOS 5. I presume it should work on old versions of OS X, the OS in
which *we* first saw this problem, as well. Hopefully the patch is
merged and a new release is made soon. If not, I suppose we could make
an SPKG for pyOpenSSL 0.13 incorporating the patch...
