What have you tried?

The packages installed by scallywag are recorded in the build log, so 
have you looked at that to see what's installed there but not locally?

At a guess, it might be that you need python38-wheel or python38-pip 
installed, which scallywag arranges to be installed when it sees 
'inherit python-wheel' [1]
