Answer

(Warning: Ubuntu specific answer. Somewhat applicable to Debian, to but I don't have the details in my head right now) To use easy_install to install modules that contain C extensions (like greenlet), you need a complete development stack installed on your system. For a basic install, the means build-essential for the C part and python-all-dev for the Python part (that's where Python.h lives).

Add an 'ubuntu' tag to the question for clarity (don't have sufficient reputation myself as of now)
