commit: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=422fd73fadfbe33523e1687f90bbfecd3f7ab5d5
branch: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

The build of gesftserver in an environment without Python fails with:

checking for Python 2.4 or better... configure: error: cannot find Python 2.4 or better

However, it turns out that Python is only needed for tests, which we
don't run/use in Buildroot, so we can safely build gesftpserver
without Python.
