Just include python.h
PyInt_Check is completely implemented as a macro, it doesn't call any  

/* from intobject.h */
#define PyInt_Check(op) \
		 PyType_FastSubclass((op)->ob_type, Py_TPFLAGS_INT_SUBCLASS)

/* from object.h */
#define PyType_FastSubclass(t,f)  PyType_HasFeature(t,f)
#define PyType_HasFeature(t,f)  (((t)->tp_flags & (f)) != 0)
