The mapnik package itself doesn't provide enough to compile programs against it. This seems surprising, though maybe I've misunderstood the package conventions?

- boost is required, but only specified as a make dependency
- Can't include mapbox/variant.hpp, appears to be installed in a subdirectory of /usr/include/mapnik. Installing the `mapbox-variant` package from the AUR resolves this

Additional info:
* package version(s)
- mapnik 3.1.0-8
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any
- n/a

Steps to reproduce:
- Install the `mapnik` package
- Try to compile something that uses it
This task depends upon
