Well, icedove still doesn't build, this time with:

Creating Python environment
New python executable in /home/users/baggins/devel/PLD/rpm/BUILD/icedove-38.4.0/obj-x86_64/_virtualenv/bin/python2.7
Also creating executable in /home/users/baggins/devel/PLD/rpm/BUILD/icedove-38.4.0/obj-x86_64/_virtualenv/bin/python
Installing setuptools, pip, wheel...done.
running build_ext

checking Python environment is Mozilla virtualenv... Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: No module named mozbuild.base
configure: error: Python environment does not appear to be sane.
------ config.log ------
This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.

Doesn't matter if I use mozilla virtualenv, our virtualenv or virtualenv-2.7.
