remove mako check when python is not installed

I wrote a patch (attached) that removes the python mako module check when
python is not installed in the system. If it needs to do something with python,
it is going to fail anyway.

I tested this patch in a virtual machine without python installed to check if I
can compile mesa from a tarball created by 'make dist' command. At least now,
mako doesn't block the configuration step. The build fails at a later time due
to some python files but unrelated to autogenerated format_pack.c and
format_unpack.c files because the latter ones were already generated by make

If you think this patch is interesting to have in master, just say so and I
will send this patch to the mailing list.
