[C++-sig] Building Boost.Python against Stackless Python

I'm interested in building the Boost/Python integration support using Boost 
1.38, Visual C++ v9 (2008 version), and Stackless Python 2.6.1. I'm on a 
Windows XP machine.

Currently the build fails with an error about not being able to find 
stackless.h as included from C:\Python26\include\Python.h. In fact, 
stackless.h is in C:\Python26\include\Stackless. I assume I need to inform 
the Boost build system to search this additional include directory. 
However, I'm not clear on how to do that (I'm new to Boost).

I searched the archive of this group and found a posting from August of 
2008 on exactly this issue. However, there was no reply. I'm hoping I'll be 
a bit luckier. :-)

Thanks for any advice you can give.
