My impression is that the way to install Python packages these days is
to run "pip install" with appropriate options. Unfortunately, that
does everything in one call, from checking dependencies (you probably
need to prevent it from downloading unfulfilled ones) to compiling and
installing. I don't see a way to separate the build and install phases
when using pip.
