The python scripts must be invoked with $(PYTHON) as done
throughout the build system.

We can change the seabios makefile to call these scripts with an
explicit $(PYTHON).


However, it's odd that there isn't a default python on your system.

What python version does SeaBIOS require?
I have python 2.5 installed.

It should work with python 2.5 - there's nothing really special going
on in the script.

I manually created a python symlink to that version and then I get
this failure:

That's quite odd.  This looks data related instead of python related.
Try running a "make clean" and then "make" in just the seabios
directory.  If you still see an issue, tar up the seabios "out/"
directory and mail it to me.

It failed the same way.
I sent you the tarball offlist due its size.
