Sorry if this shows up in a strange place in the thread, but some replies did

To anybody who can't install some files in the "standard" locations, I advise
to do something like:
python setup.py install --root=~/MyPythonStuff
The directory layout of this installation under ~/MyPythonStuff is the
same as if it would be installed in the Python tree.
It is a minor adjustment for the dictates of distutils; and works for
any package which tries to install headers in the "standard" locations.
