Does pkgsrc provide any devlopment packages(including headers, link
libraries, etc.) for python, sqlite, etc? When I want to build something
depending on libraries other than the standard library, I found it I
need to download the source package from the official website.

Any ideas?

pkgsrc, for the most part, doesn't split packages up into foo and
foo-dev like RHEL does.

Can you give an example of where a build has required you to download
the source manually?

I've tested two packages.

The first one is when I want to build vim with python support, I found that
the "configure" could not detect python development files.

The second one is used by my program, which requires sqlite3. sqlite3
development files could not be detected by this script:

When you install stuff from pkgsrc it usually ends up in /usr/pkg.
Your other software may not be searching there.

Thanks. It shots my problem.
