Title: #819: BUILD: fix libpython handling in Python3.8
Thank you @sumit-bose
Do you consider the name "embed" OK for your use case? If not, I can bring that
to CPython upstream.
thanks for asking, but "embed" is ok. Please note, our use case is special in
the sense that we are just checking that objects which are expected to be loaded
dynamically do not have unresolved symbols. For this we created a small program which is
run during 'make check' which just tries to load every library, PAM module,
plugin, extension, in short everything which ends in '*.so'. So even if we do not
use an "embedded" python interpreter here '--embed' is fine imo.
