Is the right python version on your path ? You can also set the python path using PYTHON env variable for the ./configure run.

Also check that python.m4 is installed on your system (e.g. with 'locate python.m4') and that it is not outdated.

And you could see if config.log gives you some hints (search for 'python' in that file). Here with python 3.6.4 it looks like

configure:7134: checking for a Python interpreter with version >= 3.0
configure:7160: result: python3
configure:7168: checking for python3
configure:7198: result: /usr/bin/python3
configure:7216: checking for python3 version
configure:7223: result: 3.6
configure:7235: checking for python3 platform
configure:7242: result: linux

Hello,

Wget is a great piece of software.

I way trying to run ./configure for wget 1.19.4 on Cygwin64 and got an error.

It says about my Python interpreter

> version is >= 3.0... no
> configure: error: Python interpreter is too old


In fact my Python is version 3.6.4.

Probably some strange bug while testing for version.

Thank you,
Mikhail
