Actually, calling the first 'python' on PATH _is_ potentially
problematic, if you mix more than one python stack on your system.  It
may mean that we need a ./configure --with-python=/path/to/python, then
install the tools with a hard-coded substitution to the absolute path
passed at configure time instead of the use of env to run the first
python on PATH.  But let's not worry about that unless someone actually
complains that it broke their setup.
