The configure script in newt-0.52.13 cannot recognize python version correctly.
code snipplet ( about line 142 in configure.ac )
if test "x$with_python" = "xno"; then
PYTHONVERS=$(ls /usr/include/python*/Python.h 2> /dev/null | sed "s|/usr/include/||g"| sed "s|/Python.h||g" 2> /dev/null)
If I have multiple python directory under /usr/include/, for example:
$ ls /usr/include/python* -d
/usr/include/python2.5 /usr/include/python2.6 /usr/include/python2.7
The configure result would be:
checking for python versions... python2.5
configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating Makefile
config.status: creating libnewt.pc
config.status: creating config.h
Makefile:16: *** missing separator. Stop.

How do you think of this patch? Seems working here.
Fixed in git. Thanks.
I've also limited the version to 2.*, as it doesn't compile with python3.0 yet.
