The configure script for mate-image-viewer fails on python version detection:

checking whether Python support is requested... autodetect
checking whether /usr/bin/python2 version >= 2.3... configure: error: too old
cro@shiny:~/Workspace/Mate-Extra/mate-image-viewer$ which python
cro@shiny:~/Workspace/Mate-Extra/mate-image-viewer$ /usr/bin/python --version
Python 2.7.2+

The script in distros/ubuntu/build sets PYTHON=/usr/bin/python2 but which python returns /usr/bin/python.

Changing the script to PYTHON=/usr/bin/python allows the configuration and build to complete.
