I had downloaded the latest versions of xcb-proto (1.4) and libxcb (1.2)
on my mpc8540 machine (which has no python), but on my desktop (which has
python), I run Opensuse 10.3, and I don't want to risk to break my
desktop by changing the xcb version installed there.



PS : xcb-proto-1.4/configure fails also on my mpc8540, with the same
error message : 
    checking for a Python interpreter with version >= 2.5... none
    configure: error: no suitable Python interpreter found
