still failing for me after installing "python36-devel". however even if it
works, it seems we have an issue. if you need "python36-devel" to use
"find_library", then it seems you only need "binutils" if you are installing
"python36-devel", not "python36".
so the "binutils" dep should be moved from "python36" to "python36-devel". this
way it only hurts people installing the development python, not also people
wanting to run "print('hello world')"
if you have another reason why "python36" should require "binutils" i would be
interested to read it - thanks.
