[pycrypto] Build error, 2.6.1

As this project hasn't seen commits on master (or perhaps any branch) in 
over three years, it appears to be dead.

However, pycryptodome is alive and well! It's a fork off the latest 
pycrypto and contains many bugfixes, enhancements. Most importantly, 
it's an ongoing project.



There are two ways to install it: for a seamless experience I recommend 
uninstalling pycrypto (if present) and installing pycryptodome.

(pycryptodomex has its uses for some, but would mean editing your 
imports, whereas pycryptodome is a drop-in replacement for pycrypto.)

If you have issues with installing or using pycryptodome, there are 
resources there to guide you and an active issue tracker as well.

Good luck!
