[rdiff-backup-users] Problem when compiling - can't find Python.h

I use rdiff-backup to do backups to two external systems where I have
shell login accounts. Trying to compile version 1.3.3 on *both* of these
systems fails because Python.h is missing:-

    copying rdiff_backup/user_group.py -> build/lib.linux-i686-2.5/rdiff_backup
    copying rdiff_backup/win_acls.py -> build/lib.linux-i686-2.5/rdiff_backup
    running build_ext
    building 'rdiff_backup.C' extension
    creating build/temp.linux-i686-2.5
    gcc -pthread -fno-strict-aliasing -DNDEBUG -g -fwrapv -O2 -Wall 
-Wstrict-prototypes -fPIC -I/usr/include/python2.5 -c cmodule.c -o 
    cmodule.c:24:20: error: Python.h: No such file or directory
    cmodule.c:76: error: expected '=', ',', ';', 'asm' or '__attribute__' 
before '*' token

So, is this simply because the remote systems don't have some Python
development headers installed or is there some more subtle problem?
