Sorry for failing to respond to the previous e-mail. Missed it.
I haven't seen that particular warning before. It'll probably have a log entry

maybe it's an older one? You may need to hand-upgrade libgmp, I'm not sure.
>From your previous e-mail:

We don't have any documentation right now on p4python's SSL support. This is
only needed if you're using SSL-backed Perforce repositories. It's
unfortunately not something we can automate well right now, but essentially,
you'd have to install OpenSSL 1.0.1 on your distro and install its development
package (I don't know if newer versions work -- hopefully other 1.0.x releases
do). You'd then need to manually compile/install p4python. Yes, it's a pain,
but it's something Perforce will need to make easier for us.
