Ressurect python dependancy checker for stack distribution

      Description

      As discussed in the SAT call 2014-08-19

      The problem is alerting stack users to potentially missing assumed third party dependancies. (The example was DS9). Robert The Good said he had a config-time checker that he could ressurect to check for third-party dependancies.

      Robert said:

      The configure stuff is in
      git@git.lsstcorp.org:LSST/DMS/devenv/lsst
      but may be/probably is very out of date.

      I'll have a look at it and (a) add DS9 check (b) check with Dick in case he needs to document any extra steps.

            It's actually an autoconf script. I wouldn't object to reimplementing it in another technology, but it has to be something that can execute on a bare (developer) OS, since this is intended to run before any LSST-distributed software has been installed.

            autoconf is fine by me if it's fine by you.

            This issue is old, and likely no longer reflects current thinking about third party dependencies. Closing as “Won't Fix”.
