Solution b is not enough: even if the configure script does not claim a 
specific version of python, it will still be unable to detect an installed 
python > 2.4 because it contains that:

for am_cv_pathless_PYTHON in python python2 python2.4 python2.3 python2.2 python2.1 python2.0 none; do

What about solution c?

c) Tweak autogen.sh so that it patches generated configure and add
the checks for python > 2.4 if they are missing:
