Checking existence of pyconfig.h to determine whether CFFI-based
notmuch bindings are buildable is not enough; for example Fedora 32
ships pyconfig.h in python3-libs package, but python3-devel is required
to be installed for the bindings to build.

Executing cffi.FFI().verify() is pretty close to what is done in
bindings/python-cffi/notmuch2/_build.py to get the c code part of the
bindings built.

diff to v1:

> +    rm -rf __pycache__  # cffi.FFI().verify() uses this space

fits pretty well w/ pytest $conf removal few lines below
