Actually, the above is part of the error.  It states that 'gcc' failed but
doesn't provide the details of what it found that it didn't like.  To be much
more helpful, we'd need to see the specific compiler error(s) that you got.

The full list of files that comes with the Python package can be found


You want to make sure you see all of these files.  Adding the path to them
via -I is enough to make this happen, if it's not there already.
