python-devel is a dependency of gobject-introspection. It would be nice
if JHBuild's python-devel requirement could be satisfied by or
python2.7.pc or python3.pc or etc. But JHBuild doesn't support this yet.
I raised a bug [1].

In the meanwhile, add 'python-devel' to skip in ~/.config/jhbuildrc, or
use --nodeps, or add check_sysdeps=False to ~/.config/jhbuildrc.
