Description Ting-Wei Lan 2015-02-21 12:23:34 UTC
d-feet use #!/usr/bin/python, which doesn't work on systems that have python installed in different locations.

I'm not sure if using @PYTHON@ is the right idea/choice.

Reading [1], it says: "The name of the Python executable"
This means, it's not necessarily set to the full path, but rather python3, python2.7 etc.

Comment 3 Ting-Wei Lan 2015-10-17 17:31:38 UTC
@PYTHON@ can be wrong if users manually set it, but I don't find an alternative  that we can use in automake. Should we just try to find it in PATH if PYTHON is not a full path?
