This list is for the development of Python itself, not about using or 
installing it.  Python-list (AKA comp.lang.python) is the right list to 
ask such questions.  That said ...

... include file and library file selections for building standard 
library modules are handled by the top-level setup.py file in the source 
tree.  That's where /usr/local/... is added and chances are that the 
above header is being added by add_gcc_paths() in setup.py.
