  Complex and lacking information.  I've never heard of Cython or Pyrex, but
if you could manage to cut your failing compile down to a really simple
testcase that anyone can reproduce, you'll get a lot more help a lot quicker.

  Copy and paste the failing command line from your build logs into a bash
shell, adding the "-v" flag.  If the list of search paths that shows you
doesn't help, try making a copy of the failing .c file, but snip out
everything after the #include statements at the top, and try compiling that
(with the same command-line, just change the name of the .c file it mentions).
 If that also doesn't work, post the commandline and the cut-down .c file here.
