jhbuild complains about missing python-devel package

When I run jhbuild build, it prints the following output and quits:

Required packages:
  System installed packages which are too old:
  No matching system package installed:
    python-devel (python.pc, required=2.5)
jhbuild build: Required system dependencies not installed. Install using the command 'jhbuild sysdeps --install' or to ignore system dependencies use command-line option --nodeps

My distro (Arch Linux) doesn't have a package called python-devel, and furthermore doesn't provide the python.pc file in any package. It does however provide python-2.7.pc, python3.pc, python-3.2.pc, and python-3.2mu.pc.

If I pass the the --nodeps flag to jhbuild, all my modules (pygobject, clutter, and vala) still build successfully, so it appears python.pc isn't actually necessary.

Any insight as to how this might be fixed?
