[cc'd to xml-sig@python.org, since this might be a PyXML problem rather
 than a Distutils problem]

Yeah, I think this might be a PyXML problem: it seems to be expecting a
header file that's either not installed on your system, or not in any of 
the directories that VC++ is looking in.  (It might be a Distutils
problem, since Distutils tells VC++ where to look for header files.  Not 
sure.  XML-SIG, what's up here?)

The big hairy traceback is my fault though -- Distutils should suppress
those.  I started fixing that the other night and got
distracted... sigh...
