If tried using a script

#!/bin/sh
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/rh/python27/root/usr/lib64:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH /opt/rh/python27/root/usr/bin/python "$@"

but it doesn't fix the FAILs as the hook scripts have an explict

    #!/opt/rh/python27/root/usr/bin/python

The PYTHON setting in the Makefile is the path to the script and this is
what we want in the hook.

We have a related, but sort of opposite, problem with parallel tests. I
can use the script even if it is not found in PATH by doing:

  PYTHON=/path/to/script ./autogen.sh
  PYTHON=/path/to/script ./configure
  make check

and the tests run (with the hook tests failing). If I attempt to run
the tests in parallel

  make check PARALLEL=1

then all the python tests SKIP because when the parallel code spawns
additional python it uses the python found in PATH rather than the
Makefile PYTHON.
