As you mention later, python-config *almost* gives you exactly what you need.
Probably the closest thing is:

% python-config --configdir
% ls `python-config --configdir`
config.c     libpython2.7.a	 Makefile    Setup
config.c.in  libpython2.7-pic.a  makesetup*  Setup.config
install-sh*  libpython2.7.so@	 python.o    Setup.local

which should work fine if all you care about is locating the .so.  It doesn't
help you find the header files, but `python-config --includes` will give you
that (in -I<dir> format).


P.S. feel free to ping me on OFTC or freenode if you want to try to work out
something in real-time.
