I ported "compile openssl without perl" scheme into PC/VC6 from PCBuild.
And I noticed openssl compilation fails with a message "IDEA is
disabled" if I use original source code from openssl homepage.

I hope attached patch will fix this. openssl's Configure seems to take
options to exclude specific algorithms. I tested test_ssl, it seems
working on my VC6.

For legal reasons we can't ship Python with certain algorithms. If I can
recall correctly IDEA is one of the patented algorithms. The patch is
looking goo.d

PCBuild on py3k have fix for this. We'll need to 
investigate/merge in other branches and version.

I think this issue is outdated. ocean-city, is this still  concern for you?

FWIW, I'll be removing the VC6 build process from the 3.4 (default) branch soon.

what's the status of this issue? about SSL and Python on Windows for the builder script.

If this wasn't outdated two and a half years ago, it is now :)
