I think we should install this under a different name than simply
"libevents" to avoid confusion with a library with similar functionality
named "libevent". Not that I have a good idea for an alternative name...

I'm not sure how useful it is to install the python module - it doesn't
contain anything particularly useful on its own and simply adds cruft in
the build system. 

For the record, I still have my doubts about the maintainability of
building more projects both as part of Samba 4 and as standalone
projects and I think we should pick one of the two ways.

Patch looks good though :-)
