I was working with mercurial tonight on Apple's OS X (10.5), and received this error message while attempting to clone from a repository over SSL:

Python support for SSL and HTTPS is not installed

Any ideas as to how I go about fixing this?

I was able to correct this behavior like by installing the py25-socket-ssl port. You can do so by running the following on the command prompt:

sudo port install py25-socket-ssl
