Why not? What exactly did you do (after my suggestion), and what
exactly was the result?

> What values do PYTHONHOME && PYTHONPATH be set to??

When linking an executable, these variables have no significance at
all.  They are best left unset.

When running the embedded Python, then that should be able to find its
files in the python-configure-time --prefix, but again, during
linking, the PYTHONPATH does not matter at all.
