I attempted to build from the latest snapshot. Process fails during configure:
checking wether deprecated glib functions are enabled...
checking wether deprecated gtk functions are enabled...
checking for gdk-pixbuf-csource... /usr/local/bin//gdk-pixbuf-csource
checking for a Python interpreter with version >= 2.2... none
configure: error: no suitable Python interpreter found
Now I have the following in /usr/local/bin, which is in my PATH:
Procyon: ~/Desktop/gnubg] ls /usr/local/bin/py*
It seems that configure checks for python2. but not for python2..
