You need to specify PYTHON_PATH on the build command line, something

    $ make PYTHON_PATH=/usr/local/bin/python
    $ make PYTHON_PATH=/usr/local/bin/python install

We don't really rely on configure, and it sometimes is the case
where ./configure output does not know some knobs you can tweak in
the Makefile, but this one is not.

I think you can use --with-python=/usr/local/bin/python when running
the ./configure script.  ./configure --help may tell you more about
what you can tweak.
