Check build environment before trying to build extensions

Bug #182065 reported by Sidnei da Silva on 2008-01-11
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Would be very helpful if buildout would check for a sane build environment before trying to build C extensions. Just checking that building a sample minimal C extension and warning if it fails would be enough.

We've had issues with buildout failing to compile extensions with strange failures, people blaming it on faulty GCC and then figuring out they did not had python-dev installed.
