ok, I found thoses libraries in Debian main
cbflib-bin - utilities to manipulate CBF files
cbflib-doc - documentation for CBFlib
libcbf-dev - development files for CBFlib
libcbf0 - shared library supporting CBFlib
python-fabio - I/O library for images produced by 2D X-ray detector
so it seems that the upstream provide a thin wrapper around the cbf lib.
but looking closely to the pycbf module it seems to me that this is a
copy of the official cbf library. Can you confirm that this pycbf
python module is the one provided with cbf 
In that case we should work with the cbf maintainer and see if the
python binding could be package on its own, do
1) check that both cbf python binding are equivalent
2) found the real homepage of the official pycbf which seems to be part of cbflib.
2) fill a bug against cbflib package to add the a python-pycbf package. (it seems thaht pycbf is available from cbflib source package).
4) do not build pycbf from cctbx
5) one of you sumerize all this in the wiki once we are clear about this problem ?
cbflib is also maintained by Maintainer: Morten Kjeldgaard <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Do you have some news ?

boost_adaptbx/boost is a copy of the official boost_python ?
idem for clipper ?
if yes thoses two directories should be removed from the source package.

you will manage to find a way ;)
