compiling Python with a separate OpenSSL version seems a bit more 
then it really should be. I have tried some approaches but ran into 

The only workable solution I found was to build OpenSSL 1.1 from 

# wget https://www.openssl.org/source/openssl-1.1.1l.tar.gz
# tar xzf openssl-1.1.1l.tar.gz
# cd openssl-1.1.1l
# ./config --prefix=/opt/openssl && make && make install

And then have Python explicitly use that:

# cd Python-3.10.0
# ./configure --with-openssl=/opt/openssl

Afterwards, python3.10 loads the ssl module fine and pip works:

# python3.10 -c "import ssl; print (ssl.OPENSSL_VERSION)"
OpenSSL 1.1.1g FIPS  21 Apr 2020

  pip3.10 install mysql-connector
