Description of problem:
redhat-config-network executes #! /usr/bin/env python.

The redhat-config tools have a very specific set of requirements that are only
satisfied by the official RH install of python (/usr/bin/python).

The redhat-config tools break if the user has another python ahead of
/usr/bin/python in their path.  This is something that we do a lot here in
academia.  We need to custom build python for data analysis, etc.

The redhat-config-* tools should use #!/usr/bin/python explicitly.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. /usr/bin/redhat-control-network


Actual Results:  Can't find required libraries, and when it can it can't find
required symbols.

Expected Results:  Just works.
