Description of problem:
Makefile.inc defines PYTHON as python2.2, but Makefile explicitly calls
"python".  This means the byte-compiles will not work when recompiling rhpl on
an older release like RH 7.3 (since "python" is python 1.5).  A simple patch to
the Makefile fixes this problem.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Extract rhpl src RPM.
2. Try to rebuild on Red Hat 7.3.
3. Compiling comps.py and other python code will fail due to "python" command
calling python 1.5 instead of 2.2.

Actual Results:  When I patched the Makefile, I was able to properly build the
rhpl RPM including all .pyc files.
