The current approach to capture the Python version is fragile, as it
was demonstrated by a very specific build of Python 3 on Fedora 29
that, under non-interactive shells would print multiline version
information.

The (badly) stripped version output would be sent to config-host.mak,
producing bad syntax and rendering the makefiles unusable.  Now, the
Python versions is printed by configure, but only a simple (and better
controlled variable) indicating whether the build system is using
Python 2 is kept on config-host.mak.

On a Python 3 only system, configure will no longer print the version.

e.g.         
/* snip */
install           install
python            python3 -B ()
slirp support     git 
/* snip */

Succinctly, if Python 3.

We can further ween the world off Python 2 by replacing python2="y" for 
python3="y" and PYTHON2 for PYTHON3.

I don't think it's a big deal which way round we do this, because
once we drop Python 2 support the if and the variable will just
be deleted entirely.

thanks

Oh my, this is not what I intended... gross late Friday mistake.  I meant:

python_version=$($python -c 'import sys; print("%d.%d.%d" % (sys.version_info[0], sys.version_info[1], sys.version_info[2]))' 2>/dev/null)

- Cleber.
