[Python-Dev] python 2 for building python 3

To build the trunk Python 3k, it seems that Python 2 has to be installed.
This is because Objects/typeslots.py is called in the Makefile, and this
file uses Python 2 "print statement" syntax, which fails if $(PYTHON) is
actually Python 3.

Can anyone reproduce this?
