Oops.  That's what happens when I post untested sample code :-)
I've happily been away from C++ for a few months.

Should be more like:

// still untested code:
  char *path, *newpath;
  path=Py_GetPath();
  newpath=new char[strlen(path)+4];
  strcpy(newpath, path);
  strcat(newpath, ":.");  // ":." for unix, or ";." for windows
  PySys_SetPath(newpath);
  delete [] newpath;
