I don't think there is an instant support for this.

Gnumeric, the GNU spreadsheet, supports scripting in both perl and python,
thus the autodetection in its might inspire you.
Download it from:

Then there is macro AM_PATH_PYTHON in Automake, but I don't think it
deals with embedding.  Yet it might be inspiring.
(See file m4/python.m4 in the Automake source tree; currently, it is
identical as my /usr/share/aclocal-1.9/python.m4 from Automake 1.9.6.
There was no non-trivial change since the release 1.9.4.)
