#970: Cannot assume only one Python on system
 Reporter:  bnordgren       |       Owner:  pracine      
     Type:  defect          |      Status:  new          
 Priority:  blocker         |   Milestone:  PostGIS 2.0.0
Component:  postgis raster  |     Version:  trunk        
 Keywords:                  |  
 Corrolary: makefiles and configure need to allow user to specify python

 PostGIS with raster support does not build on arch linux without
 modification at the moment, as they have made the "python" executable be
 python 3 and the "python2" executable be python 2. GDAL python bindings
 are installed only for Python 2.

 In general, however, it will probably not be unusual to find a python 3
 and a python 2 on the same system with varying ways to cope with the name
 collision. THe build scripts need to allow the user/packager to specify
 how this should be handled in their environment.
