The macro AX_PYTHON depends on the “locate” command to determine the directory with the Python header files. I maintain a server where this tool is not installed. As a better alternative, I propose to obtain this information from Python's own “distutils” module. The distutils are used anyway several times in the Python-related macros in the Autoconf archive, so that this really gets rid of a dependency and does not generate a new one. See the attached file for the suggested patch.
