Actually, I seem to have the development libraries installed.  And I
just got it working; the error's in the error message, which didn't
tell me I was looking for Python.h (actually python-2.1/Python.h), not

So now it works, apart from a small font problem that I'll probably
manage to correct quite nicely.

Here's a patch to INSTALL.txt to make the procedure clearer:
