I added '--disable-python' because not everyone needs python uno api.
Since python-2 is necessary for build tools, there is '--with-system-python'.
There is just no need to build it internally each time.

I have no idea about '--enable-ext-scripting-python'. :-)

Well, just my view as a linux packager.
