Argh. I wasted my morning trying to build openssl and pyOpenSSL myself. It is apparent that both of their build scripts have many hardcoded assumptions which make it difficult for me to build native Windows binaries with cygwin gcc. I'm very frustrated. Feel free to enjoy my angry blog --

Anyway, it is increasingly urgent for me to be able to provide my users with a binary of pyOpenSSL. I would very much rather stop using pyOpenSSL and ~OpenSSL entirely in Tahoe, but unfortunately we still sort of rely on it for a couple of things. Please, please build binary eggs for Windows for me. Thank you.
