When compiling python 2.5.1 on Solaris 10 (sparc and x86), with openssl
0.9.8e - test_md5 fails with No module named _sha256. (As does doing an
"import md5")

When compiling, setup.dist was modified, the ssl parts were uncommented,
and modified to use the directory that we have ssl installed in.

_ssl _ssl.c \
       -DUSE_SSL -I$(SSL)/include -I$(SSL)/include/openssl \
       -L$(SSL)/lib -R$(SSL)/lib -lssl -lcrypto

The compiling env (on sol x86):
CFLAGS=-xO5 -m32 -xarch=sse3 -xcache=generic -xchip=generic
CXXFLAGS=-xO5 -m32 -xarch=sse3 -xcache=generic -xchip=generic
LDFLAGS=-L/opt/IB/lib -R/opt/IB/lib

configure --prefix=/opt/IBpython/2.5.1 --without-gcc --with-threads

However, if I modify, and replace every occurrence of
"/usr/local" with "/opt/IB" (we don't use /usr/local) - then it compiles
fine, and the md5 module works correctly.

Is it possible for this to be made a configure argument, or a
environment setting?

You need to add _hashopenssl to Setup.dist/Setup.local; then it should
provide the missing module. Apparently, when _hashopenssl was added,
nobody put it into Setup.dist. Once you have tested an appropriate
change to Setup.dist, please provide it as a patch.

Does this 2.5 issue apply to anything current?
