I think you're asking for something like what libvirt did in commit
e4384459c, by using:

#!/usr/bin/env python

instead of

Yeah, that sounds like it is not FreeBSD's default python installation
location, but your hand-installed version, or else a bug in how FreeBSD
packages things.  At any rate, using /usr/bin/env instead of hard-coded
paths would work around that just as easily as it will for python being
installed anywhere else other than /usr/bin/.
