configure: error:
Could not link test program to Python. Maybe the main Python library has been
installed in some non-standard library path. If so, pass it to configure,
via the LDFLAGS environment variable.
Example: ./configure LDFLAGS="-L/usr/non-standard-path/python/lib"

You probably have to install the development version of the Python package
for your distribution. The exact name of this package varies among them.

@vonj more info please

It is not finding python lib did you try

./configure LDFLAGS="-L/usr/non-standard-path/python/lib"

I can but only guess...

It is in the std /usr/lib location. (Vanilla Ubuntu 13.04 with python dev package.)

Installing 13.4 next week will investigate


@nickl- how'd it work out? :)
