Compiling informxidb-1.3 on python2.2?

Well I managed to get the configure script to run:

./configure
loading cache ./config.cache
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... (cached) yes
checking for python... (cached) /usr/bin/python
checking for --with-informix... /opt/informix
checking for esql... (cached) /opt/informix/bin/esql
checking for --enable-thread... no
checking for --enable-shared... yes
creating ./config.status
creating Makefile
creating ext/srcdir
creating ext/Setup
creating ext/Makefile

But got a ton of errors when trying step 5 in Robin's list:

>>esql _informixdb.c

_informixdb.ec:48:20: Python.h: No such file or directory
_informixdb.ec:49:24: longobject.h: No such file or directory

Make sense to anyone??
