check and use python2.7-config instead of python-config
Description of problem:
Building wireshark-1.6.8-1 on fedora 16 fails with the following error:
checking for python-config... no
configure: error: "python-config not found"
python-devel provides python2.7-config, but not python-config. The attached patch makes it possible to build wireshark again.
(includes some additional, non-intrusive patches too)
I strongly prefer python being fixed. It was fixed in F15 and F17, just F16 update is missing. See bug #824303.
