Where the hell did that URL come from? oy. The official/current URL is:

That $PATH is the key. We should use the "env" trick, but also recognize
that it isn't a "perfect" solution (I've had "env" break when running
scripts in a CGI environment). Ideally, configure would search all
reasonable locations or ask the user to tell it the right location, and then
subst that into all the scripts. But that is just too much work for too
little gain.

So yah... all of our Python scripts should just use "env" until somebody
wants to take the pain.
