This patch adds SSL_ROOT, SQLITE_INC and SQLITE_LIB environment
variables used to inject additional libraries/headers for building the
sqlite, hashlib and ssl modules. We've found this very useful for
building these modules against their dependencies statically for
deployment purposes. This may well not be useful for most CPython users,
but I figured it would be nice to have a record here.

I think this would be useful for anyone who builds cpython on a
non-mainstream platform.

I know this would have been useful for me when I tried to build cpython
on an older linux distro where libs were installed in a non-std location.

Are these environment variables Python-specific?

Collin: Antoine has asked for some feedback, can you answer that question?

I don't know that the variables are Python-specific. We used these variables to build various Python modules statically against the versions of openssl and sqlite maintained in Google's internal third-party repository.

Unfortunately this patch will not work if there is other (system) openssl installed in the default locations (`/usr/include`, `/usr/lib`) because this patch only add another path at the end of the search list.

Instead of this  I will make a ticket for providing configuration option for controlling the `openssl` (`--with-ssl=PATH`) and I will propose the solution (patch for current `configure` and ``). This way the user can explicitly provide the path for `openssl` and there is no need to search for one.

I think it is important to fix this because there is a lot of people having problem compiling `python` with custom `openssl`, eg.: []
