@kmihelich: Thanks for the report!

This indeed needs to be added. Good catch!

The missing makedepends is for setuptools_scm[toml] instead of setuptools_scm, and pip here is trying to install the toml module over the network. This is never the solution.

Please remove python-pip and add python-toml instead...
