# uname -a
FreeBSD xw4400.cisco.com 7.1-STABLE FreeBSD 7.1-STABLE #2: Wed Jan 14 06:14:54 EST 2009     stannous at xw4400.foo.com:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  i386
After a successful install of py-pow, the module doesn't not work:

stannous at xw4400 /usr/ports/security/py-pow/work/POW-0.7/test]$ python2.5 test.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "test.py", line 39, in <module>
    import unittest, POW.pkix, POW._oids, base64, sys, os, socket, time, types, string, StringIO, pprint
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/POW/__init__.py", line 1, in <module>
    from _POW import *
ImportError: /usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/POW/_POW.so: Undefined symbol "EVP_idea_ofb"
[stannous at xw4400 /usr/ports/security/py-pow/work/POW-0.7/test]$ 

which is odd since this module should be picking up the 
standard openssl libs:

[stannous at xw4400 /usr/ports/security/py-pow/work/POW-0.7/test]$ ldd /usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/POW/_POW.so
        libssl.so.5 => /usr/lib/libssl.so.5 (0x281ad000)
        libcrypto.so.5 => /lib/libcrypto.so.5 (0x28300000)
        libthr.so.3 => /lib/libthr.so.3 (0x28459000)
        libc.so.7 => /lib/libc.so.7 (0x28080000)
[stannous at xw4400 /usr/ports/security/py-pow/work/POW-0.7/test]$ 

If this requires a newer openssl package, it should install it
as a required package first.


Simply install py-pow on a stable 7.1 system and try to run the
self test code that comes with py-pow.
Not sure.  I think upgrading openssl may fix this.
