I believe Martin von Loewis already checked in a fix for this.

I just checked in a fix for Feature Request #719429 which fixes
this problem. It finds the header file. To enable resources:
./python -E -tt ./Lib/test/regrtest.py -u network
I have a couple of failures. I think they may have occurred
before upgrading. Is anybody else seeing this?
test_array OverflowError: unsigned short integer is less than minimum
test_logging - (I think this is the old test sensitivity)
test_trace - AssertionError: events did not match expectation
