Claudia: if you could produce a patch for this, it would be great.
Unfortunately, no action can be taken until/unless somebody can

I'm not sure if I understood you well.

Do you want a patch to change /usr/bin/python into /usr/bin/env python in
lilypond-book python script?

The source code for lilypond-book calls @address@hidden  During
the cross-platform build process, this is replaced by the
appropriate (or, in the case of OSX, **not** so appropriate)

If you can provide a patch to GUB (look at the Contributor's
Guide) which changes the location for OSX, and if you can test
that it works, then we'll accept the patch.  Be warned that this
is a very involved process; if you're experienced with
cross-platform builds, I estimate it would take 10 hours.

... is it ideal that the build process is so complicated?  No, not
at all.  Do we have an obvious alternative to switch to?  No.  If
we /did/ have a clear alternative which was better, do we have the
time to make the change in the next few months?  Almost certainly
not.  :(

So I'm afraid that this issue will remain unresolved.

I'll take a look at it. I never thought that LP's build process was *that* complicated.

I'll do some analysis on it and I'll get back to you to collect some quick advice, OK?
