I think cctbx needs this to build an extension "_pycbf.so" But I'm not sure if
they did any changes here. I'll remove that file from the patch for now and

No. This is part of the boost_adaptbx package. But they are setting pythonpath
into boost to be able to call it:
But since I don't want to break upstreams logic I'm moving that directory with
distutils. This works good. Same for clipper_adaptbx/clipper

We can remove the packages containing boost, scons and clipper since we don't
need it anymore. We just need to keep a few cctbx specific header files under

I did find a way but I need to figure out which header files are really
important for the shlib. I don't have a clue how to do that. Should I just look
into the cpp files and check what is included? Or should I just install all
header files under modules directory?
