The error is in the makefile generated for the unit tests for 
libpythonize.  I didn't catch this because the only machine I 
test built on with Python 2.3 also has 2.2. Note that the first 
compile step has the correct -I; later steps (after the failure) 
should also.

You can go into pythonize/test/Makefile and in the INCPATH 
variable, change 2.2 to 2.3. Alternatively, you can go into the 
top-level Makefile and remove the references to 
'sub-pythonize-test' (don't forget the second line of the 

In either case, don't run build.py after making the changes (or 
make the changes each time you run build.py). Or else fix the 
.pro file in pythonize/test, which is where the error really is.
