Hmm.  What if I updated the configure script to check for those as
well?  Much like how it now looks for gnutar, then gtar, then tar.  I
could have it look for python, python2.4, python2.3, python2.2,
python2.1, and python2.0.  Debian and Redhat also use a similar naming
scheme, although they do provide the plain old "python".  Then it
should work out of the box on NetBSD.
