Aha! Skimming trips me up once again.

Checking for python module 'gps' (ver >= num(3, 18)) : unknown version
WARNING: ntploggps will not be built/installed since python gps module >= 
3.18 was not found
   PYTHONDIR                     : /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages
   PYTHONARCHDIR                 : /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages
'configure' finished successfully (12.149s)

Debian Buster ships with 2.7.16 and 3.7.3. I did some poking around, 
installed some additional Python3 packages, ran 'pip3 install gps' as well 
as setting
export PYTHONPATH=/usr/local/lib/python3.7/dist-packages/

and the waf configure picked up the 3.19 package, thus building and 
installing ntploggps.
