  Log Message:
  m4: Try to use "python" as Python2 interpreter only as last resort

This patch tries to find Python 2 as "python2", then "python2.7" and finally

This is needed since "/usr/bin/python" is used as Python 3 on some Linux
distributions (for example on Arch Linux) and on Fedora 28
"/usr/bin/python" will be deprecated [1]:
    "All scripts shall explicitly use /usr/bin/python2."
