I don't know why your gnucash_core.c requests <tcl.h> - mine does not. Also, 
your other problem with <datetime.h> is running fine here, because it 
includes the correct path to the include/python2.5 directory (I'm using 
python 2.5 over here).

Sounds to me your SWIG might not fully or correctly support your installed 
python version?
