In the PKGBUILD, the maintainer changes #!/usr/bin/python to #!/usr/bin/python2, but it doesn't work.
The real location where AWN calls python is in /usr/bin/awn-applet.
The attaching patch should work. I haven't tested it, because AWN fails to build against pyxdg now, which is another problem.
Hope you can fix it soon.

Additional info:
* avant-window-navigator 0.4.0-8
* python2 2.7-2
* pyxdg 0.19-2
This task depends upon

patch works fine.

Had to hack the PKGBUILD a bit:
- ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/usr/share
+ PYTHON=/usr/bin/python2 ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/usr/share

PYTHON=/usr/bin/python2 --> forces configure to detect python2 (2.7)

edit: removed some nonsense about pyxdg, nevertheless not beeing detected... had old pyxdg installed.
