    Some of them won't ever build, as they are platform-dependent. For
    example, if you're building on a Linux machine, sunaudiodev won't
    build.

    The last sentence is just telling you to poke around in the setup.py
    code to figure out what it's looking for. Many libraries have arcane
    version naming schemes, and it might not stumble upon the right
    spelling, and thus fail to find it. For example tcl 8.5 might be
    installed as libtcl85.so, libtcl8.5.dylib, etc. I believe the modules
    which failed for you are probably all named in a straightforward
    fashion, so missing underlying libraries are probably the culprit.
