Comment (by iulius):

 (In [9899]) Python support:  use the distutils.sysconfig module at
 configure time

 Drop support for Python 2.1 and before.  It will allow to properly search
 for the python binary (in m4/python.m4) thanks to the distutils.sysconfig
 module which appeared in Python 2.2.0, released in December 2001!
 So it is no longer an issue in 2015.

 For the record, Python 1.5.2 was currently enough to build INN.

 One of the issues fixed is that on several systems, the
 /usr/lib/python2.7/config directory does not exist.  It can for instance
 be /usr/lib/python2.7/config-x86_64-linux-gnu, so the build fails because
 "config" is hard-coded in the current way the detection is coded.
