Bug Description

the changes introduced in http://lkml.indiana.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1301.1/00382.html
are causing perf to ftbfs:

cd /build/buildd/linux-linaro-omap-3.9-3.9.0/debian/build/tools-perarch/tools/perf && \
    CHK -fstack-protector-all
    CHK -Wstack-protector
    CHK -Wvolatile-register-var
    CHK bionic
    CHK libelf
    CHK libdw
    CHK libaudit
make[1]: Entering directory `/build/buildd/linux-linaro-omap-3.9-3.9.0/debian/build/tools-perarch/tools/perf'
Makefile:657: No libaudit.h found, disables 'trace' tool, please install audit-libs-devel or libaudit-dev
    CHK libnewt
    CHK gtk2
Makefile:693: GTK2 not found, disables GTK2 support. Please install gtk2-devel or libgtk2.0-dev
    CHK perl
Makefile:750: The path '/usr/bin/python-config' is not executable.
Makefile:750: *** Please set 'PYTHON_CONFIG' appropriately. Stop.

looks like they've introduced a build-dep on python-dev but not listed it.
the get-executable-or-default macro in config/utilities.mak has changed subtly so now it gives an error if python-config is not found instead of a warning as it should.
