Comment 7 for bug 674175

Michael Terry (mterry) wrote :

Try the following diff. It specifies the version of python when running make, which is relevant when make decides to rerun ./configure (which it now does on install for some reason). Since PYTHON was only specified during the debuild configure step, it reverted to the default version during install. Always specifying it prevents that bug.
