It'll compile just fine without Python. If it detects Python but then
fails to build, that's a serious bug. Not finding Python is no big deal,
especially on AMD64 where almost every distro has different (and weird)
places to hide libraries.

Try using the --with-extra-libs=/usr/lib64 argument to configure and see
if that helps. Alternately you can try --with-libsuffix=64 (this breaks
the detection of Qt on some distros, but where it does not is the more
correct solution for distros that use /usr/lib64).

I need to test approaches to adding that automatically, but it's not
entirely trivial due to various distro quirks. As usual. If only the LSB
had jumped in on the ground floor for the AMD64 transition...
