You don't need python to simply run './configure; make'. But you *do*
need python if you want to create 'configure' from 'configure.in'; to
do this, you run './autogen.sh'. Only developers generally do this.
The 1.0.1 source tarball already has a 'configure' script.

./configure is looking for python because it's trying to decide whether
it's able to build the svn-python bindings. Those are totally optional
