Ok. That answers my question. My original package did everything
with setup.py but it needs to be updated.

The interesting thing here is that the first time I tried building
m2crypto, it built swig-build automatically, but I deleted swig-build
and cleaned all up and it won't auto-build swig-build anymore. I
was trying to determine how to emulate the dependencies for my
py-glpk package, but it doesn't work. How is this supposed to work
with buildlink2 without explicit dependencies?
