Thank you for the review and confirmation.

Sure.

Moreover, $PYTHON in this context is always set by the find_python.sh
script except "none" set by above substitution in 'if test -z "$PYTHON"'
block. That is to say, without this patch, it is needed to hide Python
interpreter from the find_python.sh script to avoid check for SWIG
Python bindings.

Now I think this warning message itself means nothing, so I dropped
this warning for SWIG Python bindings.

Thank you very much.

I updated the patch.

Thanks,
