    initial v1  
    1 I attached my (hacky) workaround for this issue. I noticed in other discussions about this issue that Python maintainers didn't particularly like the fact that distutils.sysconfig was being used to obtain these values, and that if they could they'd make sure people used python-config instead. Since the port already requires python27, python27-config should be available with all the correct information, so I opted to use that instead. I imagine this is actually something that should be fixed upstream with the Python autoconf macros or Gnucash's use of said macros, so if anyone has a strong opinion there, I'd be interested to know where that falls. If someone wants to work with me on getting this submitted, I'm available.
