Please, replace the first line in lilypond-book:


#!/usr/bin/env python

in order to run in all today's unix systems, including Mac OS X.

Using this shebang is a great way to portability.

These two are not the same - the latter executes whatever python is first in the search-path. The former executes the system installed python.

If you make this change, make sure that error messages write out the full path of the program (as in 'which python'), as errors depending on the program are hard to catch.
