i 1st stumbled on this^ issue trying to run distro-pkg'd gdb in my pyenv.

it keeps insisting on hardcoded python pkg versions/paths that are the distro's default.  annoying :-/

rpath with

	export LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/pyenv/versions/3.8-dev/lib -Wl,-rpath,/usr/local/pyenv/versions/3.8-dev/lib"
	export LIBS="-lpython3.8"

is a better-safe-than-sorry choice; and shouldn't hurt
