perf tools: Makefile: PYTHON{,_CONFIG} to bandage Python 3 incompatibility
Currently, Python 3 is not supported by perf's code; this can cause the build to fail for systems that have Python 3 installed as the default python: python{,-config} The Correct Solution is to write compatibility code so that Python 3 works out-of-the-box. However, users often have an ancillary Python 2 installed: python2{,-config} Therefore, a quick fix is to allow the user to specify those ancillary paths as the python binaries that Makefile should use, thereby avoiding Python 3 altogether; as an added benefit, the Python binaries may be installed in non-standard locations without the need for updating any PATH variable. This commit adds the ability to set PYTHON and/or PYTHON_CONFIG either as environment variables or as make variables on the command line; the paths may be relative, and usually only PYTHON is necessary in order for PYTHON_CONFIG to be defined implicitly. Some rudimentary error checking is performed when the user explicitly specifies a value for any of these variables. In addition, this commit introduces significantly robust makefile infrastructure for working with paths and communicating with the shell; it's currently only used for handling Python, but I hope it will prove useful in refactoring the makefiles. Thanks to: Raghavendra D Prabhu <rprabhu@wnohang.net> for motivating this patch.
