Thanks;
I got py-rrttool-0.2.1 from sourceforge, but in its src directory it
has only 3 files,
  _rrdtoolmodule.c, rrd_extra.h, and rrd_format.h

   http://sourceforge.net/projects/py-rrdtool/files/py-rrdtool/0.2.1/

(same for site: http://www.nongnu.org/py-rrdtool/ )

Where should I be looking for other dependencies?

I installed rrdtools.exe, and don't see any rrd.h file in that
hierarchy.
