Yes, come back -- due to climate change outside temperature is not a
problem, just that sun is so low it is hard to get any electricity ;/
-- now I have power and network -- civilization is harder to find...

So, on Fedora 34, without python3-devel installed

$ python3 -c 'import cffi,setuptools; cffi.FFI().verify()'                      
__pycache__/_cffi__xd915627fxd88346ae.c:2:10: fatal error: Python.h: No
such file or directory
    2 | #include <Python.h>
      |          ^~~~~~~~~~
compilation terminated.

(as of now python3-devel-3.9.7-1.fc34 provides /usr/include/python3.9/Python.h)

(debian systems may work differently -- w/ strace the above command
line did not show any access to Python.h...)
