Don't force the use of Python 2.x, similar (but not identical to)
r51128. Print a warning if we're building with Python < 2.5.

...or Python 3, given that the test is

      if test "$python_major_version" -eq 2 -a "$python_minor_version" -ge 5

which returns true for Python 2.x, where x >= 5, but false for Python x.y, where x > 2 (or x < 2, but you *do* want 
to warn there).

Should it be

      if test "$python_major_version" -eq 3 -o \( "$python_major_version" -eq 2 -a "$python_minor_version" -ge 5 \)

(as the man page says on my machine, "The -a operator has higher precedence than the -o operator", but I'd 
parenthesize it anyway)?  That'd fail on a future Python 4, but such a Python 4 might well require more changes to 
the Python scripts....

I switched it to

  if test "$python_major_version" -eq 2 -a "$python_minor_version" -lt 5

in r51161. According to the documentation 1.x doesn't have
sys.version_info so we'd have to find another way to check for
$python_major_version < 2 if the issue arose.
