If there are problems reading config.h then probably the user deleted it
or moved 
it to another place. In this case the user has the whole responibility
for his doing. ( for example he could specify a path to search 
-I my/new/python/include/directory )

If it was deleted accidently or something similar, then
we should let the compiler complain about this missing

I think we only should print warnings if we are sure that 
we are right. Without this file we cannot be sure
that something is wrong.
