[C++-sig] Building boost::python on Ubuntu

I obviously have not got my system, Ubuntu gutsy, set up yet, since I
can't seem to build the boost::python libs. I am quite new to Linux
after escaping from Windows
When trying to build the libs, I am using:
bjam --with-python stage
in the boost root directory. It correctly finds my gcc compiler, but
then spits out 1000's of errors. Those which stand out are:
In file included from ./boost/python/detail/prefix.hpp:13,
./boost/python/detail/wrap_python.hpp:75:24: error: patchlevel.h: No
such file or directory
./boost/python/detail/wrap_python.hpp:78:2: error: #error Python 2.2 or
higher is required for this version of Boost.Python.
./boost/python/detail/wrap_python.hpp:142:21: error: Python.h: No such
file or directory
./boost/python/detail/wrap_python.hpp:190:4: error: #error
"HAVE_LONG_LONG defined but not PY_LONG_LONG or LONG_LONG"
This is odd since I have Python 2.5 installed:
simon at simon-linux:~$ python
Python 2.5.1 (r251:54863, Oct 5 2007, 13:36:32)
[GCC 4.1.3 20070929 (prerelease) (Ubuntu 4.1.2-16ubuntu2)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
A problem with my path perhaps?
As an alternative, I tried using synaptic to install the library from
the repositories, but am nor sure hwo to link to that... where is it
installed to ?
Your help much appreciated
