Fixed & patch submitted upstream.

I'm considering it. Right now there's no install target at all, and i
don't think the maintainer has an idea about which files to install and
where even. I'll keep an eye on further development either way and i'll
submit a patch should a future install target not respect PREFIX and/or

Good point. Done.

I'm not really sure how to fix that, i'm not that familiar with python
and its cache generation.

You're right. I was under the impression glava used a couple of features
that weren't yet included in the release build. Fixed.

Fixed & submitted a patch.

After figuring out the flow i've added two patches to the package that
address this.

Yeah their "build system" certainly is uh, special - to say the least.
