Source: glibc
Version: 2.29-1
Severity: normal

According to the INSTALL file, Python is now required to build glibc:

|    * Python 3.4 or later
|      Python is required to build the GNU C Library.  As of release time,
|      Python 3.7.1 is the newest verified to work for building and
|      testing the GNU C Library.

Indeed, building with the nocheck profile in a python-less chroot fails:

| $ sbuild --no-arch-all --arch=i386 --profiles=nocheck
| [...]
| checking if i686-linux-gnu-gcc-9 is sufficient to build libc... yes
| checking for i686-linux-gnu-nm... i686-linux-gnu-nm
| checking for python3... no
| checking for python... no
| configure: error:
| *** These critical programs are missing or too old: python
| *** Check the INSTALL file for required versions.
| make: *** [debian/rules.d/ 
/<<PKGBUILDDIR>>/stamp-dir/configure_libc] Error 1
| dpkg-buildpackage: error: debian/rules build-arch subprocess returned exit
