I suppose that is possible, but I doubt it. I do not know the header and
library names, but:
$ find /usr/local4 -name "*pyth*" -print
$ find /mingw -name "*pyth*" -print
/* nothing found */
These are the only places other than the Scribus source directory where
python could possible be found.

OK. The README needs to be updated and I need to install Python, including
headers and libraries.

I understand that. I am just saying that the test needs to be improved to
use freetype-config or pkg-config, instead of a hard-coded library name
libfreetype.so. The library name must be hard-coded in those tests because
neither 'freetype-config --libs' nor 'pkg-config --libs freetype2' returns
libfreetype.so on my system.

Is this the normal way, i.e., is it that building Scribus on Windows with
gcc is not supported?
