In any case I guess just hack pkgconfiig i.g.
( to pass configure)
but then unfortunately depending how your
build is, you could run into issues later on down the line,
or maybe during the build i.g. -lpython etc..

try it out and see(personally seems more work
to do so, but then again seems interesting).
