#15624: Python syntax errors on running the configure script.
 Reporter:  ashmew2  |      Owner:  rekkanoryo
     Type:  defect   |     Status:  new
Milestone:           |  Component:  unclassified
  Version:  2.10.7   |   Keywords:  python2 python3 configure
 While compiling from source , the configure script gives syntax errors
 when it tries to guess the version of python on systems where the default
 python binary is python 3.x instead of the required python 2.x. In systems
 with both python2.x and python3.x installed, the python2 interpreter is
 usually named python2 instead of python. If python2 is not installed and
 python is python3.x, the make step fails with syntax errors. This is to
 prevent the make step from failing and detect if Python 2.x is available
 even if it is not the default python on the system.
