So, installing python-devel solves the problem for me ... but what is the
proper solution that will avoid other people running into the same situation?
Is this devel package needed only if I want to install the Subversion Python
bindings? Should "configure" report a cleaner warning or error, or should it
not perform this check unless I have indicated I want to build the bindings, or
something?
