md5.py gets installed, but it just (eventually) imports from one of
the extension modules _md5 or _hashlib, neither of which is getting
built. The errors following the line

  building '_hashlib' extension

are relevant. OpenSSL gets used for its hash function implementations
if it is available. The configuration thinks you want it to use
OpenSSL, so it tries to build _hashlib, which fails. If the
configuration thought you didn't want to use OpenSSL, it would try to
build _md5.
