New submission from R. David Murray <rdmurray at bitdance.com>:

With current trunk, after a make distclean; ./configure; make install
sequence, I get the following error:

# Substitution happens here, as the completely-expanded BINDIR
# is not available in configure
sed -e "s, at EXENAME@,/usr/local/bin/python2.7," < ./Misc/python-config.in
/usr/bin/install -c python-config /usr/local/bin/python2.7-config
rm python-config
./python -E ./setup.py install \
                --prefix=/usr/local \
                --install-scripts=/usr/local/bin \
                --install-platlib=/usr/local/lib/python2.7/lib-dynload \
running install
error: must supply either home or prefix/exec-prefix -- not both
