That'd be what I'd try; meson-python no longer ships its patchelf shim
(it knows to use a system-provided one), which our current python-scipy
seems to still expect.  I can try this if you don't beat me to it.

GNOME Boxes is really part of the default GNOME suite though, I think.
I think it's good to stick to what upstream GNOME thinks should be part
of GNOME (for consistency), even if that may sometimes feel a bit odd.
