Not at present.

What if we check instead for the headers being present and only building
the filesystem modules that there's support for on the system?  Then
distributors can ensure they have the right things in their buildsystem
and anyone else can do the same.  The attached patch should implement
that for libext2fs.

The libraries get linked dynamically into the python module.  If at
runtime, the library isn't present, it won't cause a fatal error (you
won't be able to access those types of filesystems, but it won't fall
over on the import)
