This is sage version 5.5, built from source on ubuntu server x64 12.10. After the build finished, I successfully installed openssl and pyopenssl. But database_gap installation failed. As an additional note, I also tried the same thing with sage 5.5 on ubuntu desktop x64 10.04 with similar results.
I tried to install database_gap, as advised by the build from source readme, using the command:
./sage -i database_gap
And I got the results:

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/9664/failure-to-install-database_gap-in-sage-55/?answer=14403#post-id-14403It looks like the file is corrupted. As a stopgap, you could install the old version:
./sage -i database_gap-4.4.12.p1
Actually, this is the version which matches the version of GAP in Sage, so you should definitely use this one.
