PYTHON="/usr/bin/python2.7" ./configure --prefix=/usr \
--sysconfdir=/etc \
--libexecdir=/usr/lib/empathy \
--disable-static \
--disable-scrollkeeper \

I also add MAKEFLAGS="" because of :

i can argue that PYTHON is not needed because we build our packages in clean chroots and python is not installed in that environment but we started to do it for other packages and i'm fine with it.

but i'm against MAKEFLAGS="". it works for us but if you needed, you should add options=(!makeflags)

ok ... so this bug can be closed I think.

I think PYTHON="/usr/bin/python2.7" should be include in the next PKGBUILD revision even if it's not necessary in a clean chroot.
You decide ;-)
