I don't think that you missed a dependency. Obviously the "MythTV" python
package is built.
The  scripts in question are 'mythpython', 'mythwikiscripts' and should be
built in a folder under
Could you please check the existence of such folder containing the scripts?

Additionally, check the log file of the build: Look for

running build_scripts
creating build/scripts-3.10
copying and adjusting scripts/mythpython -> build/scripts-3.10
copying and adjusting scripts/mythwikiscripts -> build/scripts-3.10
