I would suggest to do skip pybindgen and print out a error message like we have
now ("PybindGen missing and could not be retrieved)" However, it would be nice
to allow the user to manually move over pybindgen installation from somewhere
else and have ./waf configure in the ns-3-dev directory later find it
The rationale is, users may be running simulations on machines where they do
not have privileges to install bzr. But maybe they can download it on another
machine and move it over.
