For me (debian 10, python 3.8.3) this leaves __pycache__ in the top
directory. This is particularly unfortunate when configure is invoked by
"make clean"; I know, who runs clean first, except all debian packages
;). 

I tried adding a call to "cffi.verifier.cleanup_tmpdir()" per the cffi
docs, but there seems to be a nested __pycache__ directory that is not
cleaned up by that (or is created later).  I guess the best option is
just to rm -rf __pycache__ at the appropriate point in configure?

[PATCH] configure: use cffi.FFI().verify() to test buildability of CFFI bindings

2020-06-08 Thread Tomi Ollila
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.

I just could not get this right last time. Probably I concentrated on
testing in debian 10 container so much, that the small differences in
other systems went unnoticed (had that fedora 32 host polluted by
installed python3-devel when doing final tests on that system)...
