Dave Malcolm <dmalcolm at redhat.com> added the comment:

The simplest solution here may to be to create a symlink:

  ln -s $(pypydir)/include $(pypydir)/include/python2.5

With that in place, an invocation of AM_CHECK_PYTHON_HEADERS run with PYTHON=pypy finds PyPy's version 
of the python headers, and compilation proceeds (...eventually running into other issues, but that's 
another story)

FWIW, I started writing a pypy-config, based on the one from CPython 2.5, but it looks like I misread 
the "configure"; it seems to be looking for it within the pwd, not the PATH.
