Right, then my plan will not work, and the only way to fix the problem 
is to upgrade automake on the machine that produces the gluterfs

You seem to take for granted that people building a glusterfs 
release will run autotools before running configure. This is not
the way it should work: a released tarball should contain a 
configure script that works anywhere. The tarballs released up to
at least 3.3.0qa40 have a configure script that cannot detect python > 2.4
