Python 3.0a1, Gentoo Linux x86, with OpenSSL 0.9.8e installed.

$ ./configure; make

Failed to find the necessary bits to build these modules:
_sha256           _sha512
To find the necessary bits, look in setup.py in detect_modules() for the
module's name.

setup.py says:

if (openssl_ver < 0x00908000):
            # OpenSSL doesn't do these until 0.9.8 so we'll bring our
own hash
            exts.append( Extension('_sha256', ['sha256module.c']) )
            exts.append( Extension('_sha512', ['sha512module.c']) )

But I have openssl 0.9.8e.  So openssl is new enough that I don't need
the _sha256 and _sha512 modules.  And the comment says that "these
aren't strictly missing since they are unneeded", so the error message
is spurious.

Assigning to Skip.

Assigning to me because?  I've had no involvement at all
with SSL or sha code in Python.

IIRC you added the code that collects and displays these messages.

Ah, okay.  I will take a look at that.

I just checked in r58016.  See if that solves the problem.

Yes, the fix works for me.  Thanks.

Thanks.  I'm not sure how this slipped in there (I could check, I
suppose).  It seems to already be on the 2.5 branch, so I added it to
the trunk (r58022) as well.
