Aah, yes, sorry, not your fault. There is an issue with Python 3 and
external modules in the BR2_PACKAGE_PYTHON3_PYC_ONLY case, caused by
PEP 3147. There is a patch pending at
http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/373082/ to solve this, but I'm not
really happy with the proposed solution, and I wanted to investigate
