No, bug 1004592 is about python3 default. And this bug is about the build error introduced this week. At least revsion 4327 builds with no errors (after fixed python issues).

Iven Hsu (ivenvd) wrote :

This is caused by revision 3434 which introduced PythonLibs of CMake, which always finds Python3 instead of Python2.

A workaround is to configure like this:

    cmake .. \
        -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX="/usr" \
        -DPYTHON_INCLUDE_DIR=/usr/include/python2.7 \

As the issue is not caused by compiz, I'm marking it invalid.
