Bug Description

mailman's configure script assumes that Python.h is present in distutils.sysconfig.get_config_var('CONFINCLUDEPY') which is arch-specific and not where it is in raring.

Based on the distutils documentation, I think that calling distutils.sysconfig.get_python_inc() is a more appropriate way of determining the location of Python.h. It seems to work both after and before the transition that broke Raring. Is this appropriate for upstream as well?

@Mark Sapiro

This also affects the upstream Mailman project, since the pristine upstream tarball also will also fail to build on Ubuntu after the next release. What's the reason you removed the bug task?

I looked too quickly the first time and thought it was strictly a Debian/Ubuntu packaging issue and didn't look closely at your comment #1
