Ok, I looked into the problem here. Their configure script is quite 
problematic. It does find Python.h -- you can see it in the output, but since 
it can't find the Python *library*, it unsets all Python variables. But then 
the configure script succeeds, even though Python is crucial for compilation.

The problem in our side is that the Python package is indeed missing the 
static library. I thought an updated recipe was sent -- anyway, I just sent 
an update recipe and uploaded a corrected binary package. While I was at it, 
a SuperKaramba package is there as well:
