To be honest I forgot about that problem. I was just linking
against -lboost_python. Now while you are reminding me I wonder how this can
even work? Is there a symlink to libboost_python.so? I need to read up on
pkg-config first. Also I need to rework my use-system-libs patch to be more
general and upstream friendly. Maybe there will be a good way to make it work.

I didn't know that project but I saw other projects like this that depend on the
cctbx build system. We should think about a binary package that can provide the
cctbx build system (basically libtbx and scripts) which we can use as build-dep for
other packages. But for this we have to take care of the pickle object they create.
I think this is the main idea of the LIBTBX env variable and the pickle object.
