Yeah. I'm not sure how much I care about supporting OSes that
decide to be totally different from everybody else, to be honest.
It's the 21st century and POSIX is a thing.

Our Python requirement is 2.7, and configure should check that.
If you're telling configure --python=/some/nondefault/python
then I guess the problem is we're not passing that on to dtc's
build process.

It is necessary, but only for certain guest CPU types. You can
disable it by passing configure both "--disable-fdt" and also
"--target-list=<some list of targets which doesn't include
any arm, ppc, mips, microblaze or riscv targets>"
(for instance "--target-list=x86_64-softmmu".)
