After running `python setup.py install` on Linux Mint I see a compilation
error (below). This occurs regardless of whether I try to install PIL 1.1.6
or 1.1.7. Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

building '_imaging' extension
creating build/temp.linux-i686-2.7
creating build/temp.linux-i686-2.7/libImaging
gcc -pthread -fno-strict-aliasing -DNDEBUG -g -fwrapv -O2 -Wall
-Wstrict-prototypes -fPIC -IlibImaging -I/usr/include -I/usr/local/include
-I/usr/include/python2.7 -c _imaging.c -o
_imaging.c:76:20: fatal error: Python.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1
