Follow-up Comment #2, bug #16380 (project freeciv):

According to the The GNU Coding Standards, I think, the generated files are
not to be deleted by distclean, but by maintainerclean.

Quote from the standards:
    Delete almost everything that can be reconstructed with this Makefile.
This typically includes everything deleted by distclean, plus more: C source
files produced by Bison, tags tables, Info files, and so on.

Another quote:
You may need special tools to reconstruct some of the files that ‘make
maintainer-clean’ deletes.

Thus no configure check for python would be neccessary.

Here's a patch along those lines.
