There is custom magic in setup.py that creates bin/tahoe using a shebang
for the interpreter that ran setup.py; but the Makefile just does this:


This might need to be patched to use whatever is the correct way for a
pkgsrc package to refer to the right python interpreter in a Makefile.
Extra credit if it is something that works portably on "any" Unix with
Python installed (the Makefile doesn't work on Windows unless you have
a Unix-compatible environment), but I don't know whether that is possible.
