Interesting thing that I noticed is that building hippo in jhbuild
updates the source directory every time ... but hippo.so is present in
/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/ which has nothing to do with the
build path of jhbuild :-/

and removing hippo.so from that path returns the error "module hippo
not found" when importing in python ..
