It should build out-of-box. Is this the standard Python distribution from
www.python.org? Check your environment variables. You should not have CFLAGS or
LDFLAGS; these will overwrite the flags that are necessary for building Python
extension modules.

If that doesn't work, please give us the complete output of

  $ python setup.py -v build
