Comment(by bdubbs@…):

 The book already had PyGTK as an optional dependency, which requires
 python.  There is a section that builds Python Bindings.  I had python
 installed, and did not attempt to build libgsf without python.

 There is an option in configure

 --{with,without}-python   Build with the python support

 The default ./configure fails when the option --without-python is omitted.

 I suppose we should add python as an optional dependency and add -without-
 python to the configure line.
