           Summary: Python plugin is linked against libpythonXY.so instead
                    of libpythonXY.so.1.0
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: 3.8.1
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3

the title says all, python-plugin needs libpythonX.Y.so and abort if it cannot
find it.
The problem is that this file is generally provided by devel package (I'm on
mageia) and it doesn't seems right to depend on devel at runtime.

error message :
** (claws-mail:11538): ERROR **: libpython2.7.so: cannot open shared object
file: No such file or directory

The problem seems to come from configure.ac line 113 in the definition of

and after that, line 133 :

If I comment or removethe latest line (patch attached), the plugin compile and
run fine.
As my autotools-foo is poor, I'm not sure I understand the meaning of the
detection, so forgive me if the patch is really wrong.
