Can you tell us which are the messages concerning Python in the

It appears that, after downloading and installing a bunch of libraries

Currently *I try* to get my copy of a gobject-introspection

pygobject configure-script.

I cannot yet report success, but will in one of my following messages.
My Internet-connection is currently very slow.

*However, Suggestion*:
If you want to keep the compilation of plugin-loaders an option to the
Gnummeric configure-script, either let the configure-script bail out in
case of a missing library or (better) exclude the plugin-loader from
being configured by default, i.e. change the option to
 --with-python        *Do* build the Python plugin loader

Because the current solution "Do everything and do not fail if it ...
well... fails" isn't really ergonomic to the blind moles like me. ;-)

Thanks anyway,

appears to contain the python-loader source-code, but there is nothing
found in the plugins-directory, after compilation/installation.

A corrected version of my last attempt to clarify:

I have looked at the source-package that I used to compile
Gnumeric 1.12, and the python-loader source-code is included in the


In the options to "configure" I read
--without-python        Do not build the Python plugin loader

But as I *want* the python-loader, I *did not use* this option but the
python-loader is definitely not present in the current plugin-directory
for Gnumeric 1.12 (after installation):
