I've been crunching the aclocal.m4 script (boy are those things ugly...) and
here's what I've found:
It searches for the python interpreter in the following order:
python, python2.1, python2.0, python1.6, python1.5
then it runs it and pulls out its version. So you have to link python to the
correct one, and then run configure.
I just tested that on my system and it seems to work.
