py-rrdTool - install fails

I want to do some rrd in a python cgi script, but am having trouble
getting an easy install module.

py-rrdTool looks good, but is distributed in c source, and is missing
a header file in the distribution. Thus the install fails when it
tries to reference rrd.h which is not there.

Are there better rrd modules to use, or a compiled version of this, or
other suggestions?
