            Bug ID: 16138
           Summary: cracklib has broken python detection, fails to build
                    with python3 default
           Product: Codex
           Version: test grimoire
          Hardware: x86
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: security
          Assignee: sm-grimoire-bugs at lists.ibiblio.org
          Reporter: sobukus at sourcemage.org
    Classification: Unclassified

I don't care about cracklib and have enough problems, so I'll only report: It's
broken with pyhton3 as default. It depends on some PYTHON, but there is no
mechanism to select the proper python. The configure script finds
/usr/bin/python and runs with it, failing:

checking for python... /usr/bin/python
checking for python version... 3.8
checking for python platform... linux
checking for python script directory... ${prefix}/lib/python3.8/site-packages
checking for python extension module directory...
checking python3.8/Python.h usability... no
checking python3.8/Python.h presence... no
checking for python3.8/Python.h... no
configure: error: python headers not found
 ! Problem Detected ! 

It misses -I/usr/include/python3.8 in this case (`python-config --includes`
tell you this). Maybe we want to get rid of python2 and fix this up for 3 only
(until 4 comes along).

PS: This is in security-libs … we're even missing a bugzilla component for
