4-11.2 source building fails during gdb generation on Linux Mint 17.1
"checking for python2.7" is followed by
"python missing are unusable"

this is due to an #include "Python.h" that fails

NOTE: the source building package of 4-11.2 that is used, generates a NOT RELEASED message at the start; a ticket has been raised for this

The problem has been resolved
The message sequence "checking python2.7" and result "python missing" are not related
In between is a check for Python.h which was not installed.
Installation has resolved the generation issue

Hence a recommendation is left for sb-check to test on Python.h (as well to check for ncurses and termcap)

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

This will not be fixed on this branch.

Checking for a header is not simple to implement. Where do you check for python.h because the location can vary from host to host. For example on MacOS and Xcode it is /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/MacOSX.platform/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX.sdk/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/include/python2.7/Python.h.
