Hi Erik,

the header files inside pyfits-3.0.10/src seem to be missing

When installing from PyPI, I get the following:

src/fits_hcompress.c:109:20: fatal error: fitsio.h: No such file or directory

compilation terminated.

error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1

> Hello all,
> Today two new versions of PyFITS were released: 3.0.10 and 3.1.1.  These are
> both bug fix releases without any significant new features.  Many of the bug
> fixes in 3.1.1 were backported to 3.0.10 where applicable for those who have not
> yet upgraded to 3.1.x.  3.0.10 also included some slight tweaks to the header
> interface that should help ease the transition to 3.1.x.
> Otherwise most of the issues fixed are rare or minor. The full changelogs for
> both versions can be read here:
> http://packages.python.org/pyfits/appendix/changelog.html
> As usual, both new versions are available for download from PyPI:
> http://pypi.python.org/pypi/pyfits/3.1.1
> http://pypi.python.org/pypi/pyfits/3.0.10
> PyFITS 3.1.1 will likely be the version included in the next release of
> stsci_python as well, barring any major issues that need to be fixed in the
> meantime.
> Let me know if there are any problems,
> Erik
