Please note another aspect of this problem will bite all Python developers on Ubuntu 11.04.  With the introduction of multiarch, not all stdlib Python extension modules can be built out of the box, as seen here:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/db4.8/+bug/738213/comments/13

Ubuntu's source package was hacked to make things work, by calling out to dpkg-architecture and adding the resulting directories to library_dirs and include_dirs search paths.  That patch would obviously have to be modified at the very least to be robust on non-Debian/Ubuntu platforms.

I'm not sure what the right solution is for upstream.
