Yes, you're right, bz2 support in python requires the bz2 lib to be
installed. But from the source code above, it seems that it scans the
library dirs looking for the lib and not for the header file. I'm sure
there is a configure option to add additional dirs to the lib search
path. Maybe you should try this.
