Python in non-standard location erring with "No module named _sha256"

I'm running into the below "No modules named _sha256" issue, with a
python installed in a non-standard location.

$ python
Python 2.5.2 (r252:60911, May 20 2008, 09:46:50)
[GCC 3.3.3 (SuSE Linux)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright" , "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>import md5
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
File "/ws/ompi-tools/lib/python2.5/md5.py", line 6, in <module>
from hashlib import md5
File "/ws/ompi-tools/lib/python2.5/hashlib.py", line 135, in
<module>
sha224 = __get_builtin_c onstructor('sha 224')
File "/ws/ompi-tools/lib/python2.5/hashlib.py", line 63, in
__get_builtin_c onstructor
import _sha256
ImportError: No module named _sha256

Googling around, this seems to be related to OpenSSL being in a non-
standard location? I've edited the Setup file to set $(SSL) to the non-
standard location. Now Python compiles fine, but I still get the above
error.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Ethan

One solution was to just use Python 2.3.7 (instead of 2.5).

Maybe you run the configure, make, make install without addind devel
packages on your system. I mean:

openssl-devel
readline-devel
....
